OST MEN cherish memories of the 
happy and glorious past. Old 
friends, old scenes, old contests all 
become more dear as the years roll 
on. The days that are gone are en- 
chanted. Nothing holds as impor- 
tant a place in the memories of a college man as those 
days when he was a student at his Alma Mater. 
It is hoped that this book will serve to recall to its 
possessors the years they spent at Massachusetts, the 
former classmates, the campus life, ^nd all that that 
life meant to them. The ties that bind us to our col- 
lege should be everlasting. 


3^ap €. ^orrep 

WHEN in 1919 ive learned that our former student at the Massachusetts Agricultural College, 
Dr. Ray E. Torrey, graduate of the class of 1912, was to return to his Alma Mater to assume 
the duties of instructor in Botany, leaving his position in Wesleyan University, much interest was 
felt by those who remembered the tall lanky student of former years, whose thorough scholarly 
work as an undergraduate had impressed itself upon all. We recalled a shy, modest and unassuming 
student of brilliant ability, and we were interested to see the development which maturer years 
of study and experience in life must have yielded a receptive mind, full of latent possibilities. 

The return of the native revealed the old modest and unassuming manner, but the man in- 
stead of the boy. of mental alertness, of strong convictions, the man who had found himself. 
Years of study at Harvard, of travel at home and abroad, of experience in the class-room had placed 
the unobtrusive student upon the higher plane of recognition of individual duty and responsibility, 
and had given the unassuming character the force and energy of self-assertiveness. 

Acquainted with his record as an undergraduate, knowing the favor his graduate work had re- 
ceived from the most eminent specialists, and the successful teaching career already launched forth 
upon, we augured only successful and fruitful years of labor in work resumed at M. A. C. The 
realization of optimistic forecasting: the recognition of the intrinsic value of steady adherence to 
the highest ideals of teaching, as the leader of the student to broader fields of intellectual attain- 
ment, of insight into life and its various individual problems; the giving unstintedly of self to 
awake and promote better scholastic attainments; the recognition of the spirit of ambition for the 
student; the desire to cooperate, to lead, to point the way to broader mental perception — all these 
dominant forces of the best in pedagogy we promised would be felt and appreciated. Our augury 
was good. In dedicating the present year-book to Doctor Torrey the students pay him their 
highest tribute. 

Ray E. Torrey was born December 15, 1887 at North Leverett. His early education was re- 
ceived at the schools of Leverett, Montague, and Deerfield. In 1907 he was graduated from the 
Montague High School under Principal A. C. Monahan, a graduate of M. A. C. It was at the 
Montague High School that an interest in Natural History began to develop, also here was fostered 
a talent for drawing which later proved to be an economic asset. Leaving the High School, Mr. 
Torrey entered the First National Bank at Greenfield, supposing he was through with formal edu- 
cation. But he soon realized the monotonous routine work was in no wise sufficient to engage a 
mind eager for knowledge. He read widely and wanted to know more. 

At Principal Monahan's instigation he was led to enter M. A. C. in the fall of 1908, believing 
at first that he had an inclination for floriculture which he had practiced as an amateur. Lnder 
the stimulating influence of a few men in Science here he became interested in Biology and Geology, 
and particularly in the philosophy of Evolution, which led logically to studies In philosophy. Not 
being hampered by formal instruction in the latter, he was able to extend his reading outside the 
beaten track and dipped rather extensively in Eastern philosophy. Entirely on his own resources 
he lived on the raw edge of nothing for four years-then, as at all other phases of his career, daunted 
by no physical difficulties or hindrances. In his senior year he was Laboratory Assistant in Bot- 
any; he also received the Hill's Prize for the best herbarium collection. 

Immediately answering a call to assume the position of Head of the Department of Botany in 
Grove City College, Grove City, Pa., he taught there Botany, Zoology and Geology until 1915. 
The summer of 1914 was spent in Germany, Italy and England; but the European tour was rudely 
interrupted by the war, and he was caught in the general American exodus. 

In the fall of 1915, Mr. Torrey entered Harvard for graduate work, majoring under Professor 
E. C. Jeffrey in Vascular Morphology. Here he assisted in instructing Harvard classes. His 
talent for drawing was splendidly utilized in the many illustrations which he made for Professor 
Jeffrey's "Anatomy of Woody Plants." He also collaborated with Professor Jeffrey in several 

articles dealing with Evolutionary Morphology. Upon receiving the Thayer Fellowship in Botany 
in 1917, he spent nine months in the Western and Southern States searching for fossil lignitic woods. 
He visited practically every region where such woods occur. In a thesis embodying the results 
of these researches, he was able to add one new genus and sixteen new species to science. His thesis 
was accepted for the doctorate in 1918, and also for publication by the Boston Society of Natural 
History. In 1918 he took the position in Wesleyan University as substitute for the professor who 
was then overseas, to teach classes in Biology and Vertebrate Zoology, preparing R. O. T. C. men 
for army medical work. In 1919 came the call to M. A. C. 

Owing to the native modesty of Doctor Torrey and his keen dislike of personal aggrandize- 
ment, we have no wish to eulogize here in any way; but it would be unfair to himself and to the 
class who are dedicating this year-book to him if we refrained from a few words of fair estimation 
held by faculty colleagues and the student body: a slight appreciation of esteem in which Doctor 
Torrey is held by teacher and individual. 

It would be impossible to conceive of a teacher of experience at Harvard doing work at M. A. C. 
without holding at M. A. C. the same high ideals which have won recognition at Harvard. Doctor 
Torrey is above all the scholar — one of preeminent attainment and rare capacity — and to his work 
in the class-room he brings the highest ideals, placing before the student the worthy goal to- 
wards which to strive. But his work as instructor does not end here. Having set the goal and given 
proper incitement towards attaining the same, he lends his whole force towards assisting the stu- 
dent forward, utilizing every opportunity to encourage and advance. Believing the college is an 
educational institution rather than a tradeschool, he has for each student scholastic ambition; 
permeated with the dominant scientific dogma of the survival of the fittest, he believes the college 
man should reach superior mental attainment. Of the highest ideals in this respect, of unswerving 
persistency, of mental dauntlessness, he finds it difficult to tolerate the college man of mere voca- 
tional ambition. A contributor to science of a now established international recognition, M. A. C. 
may well be proud to rank Doctor Torrey as an alumnus and an instructor, and the coming years 
alone may tell how long she may hold this worthy son. 

The man — the individual: a nature rich in appreciation of those things beyond the narrower 
limit of personal interest; a scientist and thinker, endowed with a most human personality — 
interest in life in its varied forms — helpfulness — altruism at the expense of self — bubbling over with 
the keenest sense of humor amounting almost to an obsession — appreciation of and keen insight 
into the arts, especially music, to which he reacts to an extraordinary degree — a feeling for the 
vital element in everything worth while; these are but a few of the main characteristics of our 
colleague and instructor, whose work and attainment we respect, whose individuality we esteem 
and appreciate.

Born with a passion for learning, a genius 
for teaching and a brain capable of discerning 
signs of the unknown in the phenomena of his 
environment, together with the ability to em- 
body in organized institutions his ideals, 
Charles Henry Fernald came to the Massachu- 
setts Agricultural College in 1886, when his 
inherited gifts had been fully developed by 
years of struggle with adverse circumstances. 
On his arrival in Amherst he found a few mi- 
croscopes, a skeleton, and no organized de- 
partment of Zoology. After 24 years he re- 
tired, as honorary director of the Graduate 
School organized and made successful by his 
initiative, leaving a department of entomology 
inferior to none in the country and having a 
fully equipped laboratory which since his death has been named Fernald Hall in 
his honor. The Carnegie Foundation, contrary to its policy of granting no pen- 
sions to professors of State institutions, made an exception in his case because 
of his exceptional merit as an individual and his great service rendered as a 
pioneer scientist. 

He was born March 16, 1838, on Mt. Desert Island, off the coast of Maine. 
All the education he could get before he was 16 years old was obtained by at- 
tending the country school two months in winter and six weeks in summer, 
meanwhile working on his father's farm. Ambitious to become a sea captain, 
he studied navigation and followed the sea, as a sailor before the mast, cook, 
steward, second mate, first mate and sailing master, so that at twenty-one he 
was fitted to command a vessel. His love of learning, however, proved stronger 
than his passion for the sea, and he entered the Maine Wesleyan Seminary and 
prepared for Bowdoin College. The civil war found him enlisted as a seaman in 
the navy. Promotion made him an ensign, and later he was detailed to serve 
in the coast survey near Savannah. During these months he never relinquished 
his determination to get an education and continued his studies while serving 
in the navy, so that in 1865, when discharged, he won from Bowdoin College 
the degree of A.M. 

His ability as a teacher was proved by his success as principal of the academy 
at Litchfield, Maine, and by his five years at the head of floulton Academy. 
Always learning, he studied with Louis Agassiz on Penikese Island and in the 
museums in Cambridge. Called to the chair of Natural History in the Maine 
State College at Orono, Maine, he served with distinction for fifteen years until 
President H. H. Goodell persuaded him to accept a professorship at M. A. C. 

As a teacher Professor Fernald was unsurpassed. His inspiring influence 
over his pupils enabled him in his class room and laboratory to quicken the 
mind of the dullest as well as the best students. He attracted their attention, 
aroused their curiosity, awakened desire, showed them how to get what was 
wanted, made them say "I must have it!" Master of himself and the perfect 
embodiment of patience, he imparted to his scholars the power of protracted 

interest and of continued thought which made them deHght in difficulties and 
persevere years, if need be, in order to comprehend the Hfe history of an insect 
and to discover the remedy for a destructive pest. 

His success as a teacher soon attracted pupils from Amherst College, from 
Harvard, from Cornell and other institutions, and from other countries, who 
begged that they might enter his classes. These continued applications made it 
necessary for him to offer courses to graduates that should enable them to ob- 
tain the degree of M.Sc. and Ph.D. This started the M. A. C. graduate school. 
His pupils went to South Africa and to other British possessions, to Alabama 
and other distant states, and always persisted in the way he marked out for them. 
Prof. Fernald possessed the unique qualities that made him successful in 
research work. His method involved exact and comprehensive observations, 
precise definitions, fixed terminology, classified arrangement and rational ex- 
planation. Having prepared his material for thought, he could hold it up clearly 
before his mind's eye and by his constructive imagination ponder over these 
objects of thought until he discerned their relation, discovered the conditions, 
the final cause and the efficient remedy. Then sooner or later the rays of truth 
burst forth, like the rays of a polariscope, splitting the darkness and reducing 
chaos to cosmos. The joy of such a revelation he could never forget, and when 
it burst forth out of his own mind into the minds of his attentive pupils', thej'^ 
were transformed from commonplace boys into students and scientists energized 
by the passion for knowledge. 

Prof. Fernald's long experience as a Maine farmer, a sea-faring man, a 
teacher and a business man gave him a wonderful knowledge of human nature. 
He could lead not only a bunch of academy boys and girls, a lot of college stu- 
dents, a gang of sailors on deck or on shore, but he could also have his way with 
college presidents and members of the faculty, with farmers from the back 
districts and with governors, senators, legislators and congressmen, statesmen, 
or politicians. He seldom failed to get what he needed for the benefit of science. 
His hard common sense impressed men with the fact that he was no impractical 
theorist and that whatever he demanded he would surely get sooner or later. 
So they concluded that it was best to yield to his wishes at once. 

Charles H. Fernald was a leader of men. As teacher, scientist, original re- 
search worker, administrator, acting president of the college, constructor of in- 
stitutions which shall em- 
body and disseminate his 
ideas and influence, he has 
left his mark upon the Massa- 
chusetts Agricultural College, 
which will never be obliterated 
as long as the institution shall 
remain a training school for 
men and women, fitting them 
for the service of the Com- 
monwealth, the nation, and 
the world.

Zftt mnmni of M* ^* C, 

The alumni make the college. The students may have the best athletic 
teams in the country, they may surpass the students of all other institutions in- 
tellectually, they may excel in any particular college activity, yet all that matters 
not to the world outside. The only reason for the existence of any college is that 
it may produce men who will be of distinct use to their fellowmen. If the alumni 
are useful to other men to a marked degree, if they produce something of distinct 
value, the college performs its part in our scheme of life. If the alumni are not 
useful and productive, or if they are so only to a low degree, the college has no 
excuse for its existence. M. A. C. men in all corners of the globe, and in varied 
professions, are producing results of which we are justly proud. 

There are now living between 1500 and 2000 alumni of M. A. C. The class 
of 1871, the first class, has thirteen members living, mainly in business or retired. 
The class of 1891, twenty years later, has fourteen members living, of whom six 
are engaged in professions taught at M. A. C. The class of 1911 has thirty-six 
living members. Of these, twenty-two are engaged in professions taught at the 
college, and twenty of these twenty-two are in agricultural work itself, the other 
two being chemists. Of the class of 1916, thirty-nine are in agricultural work, and 
eleven others are teaching in high schools, probably agricultural subjects. Twenty- 
nine of the men of this class are in business, many of them presumably in business- 
es connected with agriculture. The percentage of men engaged in agricultural 
and allied professions is steadily increasing. 

Among the alumni are many whose work is well known throughout the coun- 
try. Space does not permit the detailed enumeration, but a few may well be 
mentioned. From the class of 1871 came W. H. Bowker, now deceased, who 
organized a large fertilizer company. The college auditorium bears his name. 
Dr. H. E. Stockbridge, editor of the "Southern Ruralist" was of the class of 1878, 
and Dr. J. L. Hills, director of the Vermont Agricultural Experiment Station, was 
of the class of 1881. In 1882 graduated Dr. W. E. Stone, late president of Purdue 
University. Dr. Stone recently lost his life while mountain climbing in Western 
Canada. Mr. Daniel Willard of the class of 1882 is president of the Baltimore & 
Ohio R. R. Mr. Willard was forced to leave college before graduation because of 
eye trouble. The class of 1882 also contains Mr. Herbert Myrick, president of 


the Orange Judd Publishing Co., and Professor Charles S. Plumb of Ohio State 
University. Dr. Joel E. Goldthwait of Boston, a noted surgeon in the recent 
war, is an '85 man. Coming down to a more recent date Dr. A. AV. Gilbert, our 
State Commissioner of x\griculture, is of the class of 1904. Many others could 
easily be mentioned. M. A. C. men occupy many positions with the Federal 
Department of Agriculture, as directors of Experiment Stations, Extension Ser- 
vice men, professors in agricultural colleges, farmers, business men, physicians, 

Our alumni maintain a keen interest in all college affairs, and are ever ready 
to assist Alma Mater in every possible way. The Memorial Building is the most 
recent and direct contribution of the alumni to the college. Former athletes are 
frequently seen on the field assisting the coaches. A central alumni secretary 
who is in charge of the college field work has an office on the campus. AVherever 
an M. A. C. man goes he carries with him memories of his college. Alumni clubs 
are scattered over the U. S. and in Hawaii, Porto Rico, and Cuba. All M. A. C. 
alumni clubs meet annually on World Aggie Night. 

It is sometimes thought that the M. A. C. student body is too small, and that 
the scholastic requirements are too strict. Such an idea is a misconception of the 
purpose of the college. We must produce superior men. It is far better for us 
and for the people whom we will serve in the future that we produce one superior 
man rather than ten mediocre men. We have given to the world many good men 
in the past; we must continue to do so in the future. Let it be known that an 
M. A. C. man is one who understands his work and does it well. We are proud of 
our alumni, and we who are students must continue in their paths, and make the 
name of "Massachusetts" a standard of excellence.

Jfour Wtax^ at ^gsie 

UPON entering M. A. C. for the first time, the Freshman is completely be- 
wildered by the rapid succession of events which takes place the first week 
of his college career. He learns to fear the Soph, admire the Junior, and respect 
the Senior. This first week is a form of general initiation before he can become 
a member of that great fraternity known as the student body. In this week, his 
class becomes organized, officers are elected, and he is given certain rules to 
obey by the College Senate. His skull cap distinguishes him as a member of a 
class which will supply the "leaders" of the college in a few years. Thus, his 
actions are constantly criticized by the upperclassmen, and by his "guardians," 
the Sophomores. He acquires a sophisticated veneer, and college life opens up to 
him in all its joys and beauties. He is "rushed" by the fraternities, and soon he 
becomes a pledged member of one of these organizations. He begins to feel that 
he has a home on the campus, of which he, as a member, is a part and parcel. 
Aggie really becomes his Alma Mater. If he is interested in the student activities, 
he is given plenty of chance to "make" the various publications, the musical 
clubs, etc. If he is athletically inclined, he may go out for his class basketball 
or hockey teams. 

When he comes back to the campus to start the last lap of his Freshman 
year, he doffs his distinctive headgear and blends in with the remainder of the 
student body. He is now eligible for Varsity sports. Most of the Senate rules 
no longer apply. He also experiences his first spring view of the campus and 
its environs. The week-end hikes create in him an increasing admiration for 
the surroundings of "Old Aggie," so that it is with a feeling of regret that he leaves 
in June for twelve weeks the campus which he has learned to love and know so 

In the fall, he comes back to Aggie a full-fledged Sophomore, with the airs 
of a lord, and the haughtiness of a duke. He seems to have forgotten his Fresh- 
man days, for he starts "bossing" the Freshmen unmercifully. After the first 
week of classes, however, he discovers that "Billy" is a harder taskmaster 
than his erstwhile "policemen." The "Big Trio" cause him to burn "the 
midnight oil," especially if he is out for Varsity football. The word "fun" 
vanishes almost entirely from his vocabulary, although he derives some 
enjoyment by sending the luckless Frosh hurtling through the air and down into 
the clean (.'') waters of the campus pond. In the winter term, the pond being 
solidified, he takes fiendish delight in treating a few of the yearlings to the far- 
famed Arena parties. He is glad, however, when the snow leaves the ground 
and the ice disappears from the surface of the pond, as it means that Physics, 
the bugbear of all Sophs, leaves the realm of required courses, and that the 
Freshmen may once more be made to leap a la Kellerman into the abysmal 


depths of the pond. Soon the banquet scrap takes place; the fight goes to the 
strong and the race to the swift. Six weeks later the classes leave the campus 
with mutual respect and regard for each other. 

"An upperclassman at last!" It is with a feeling of pride that the erstwhile 
Sophomore says this to himself as he comes back to the campus at the end of 
his second summer vacation. He participates no longer in the contests of the 
opening week of college, but assumes the position of a spectator who is at once 
amused and bored by such childish exhibitions. Now that he has selected his 
major, his interest in his studies increases greatly. He becomes a sort of "big 
brother" to the newly-arrived Freshmen, and thus makes them feel more at home. 
He views the Freshman from a different angle from that of his Sophomore year, 
and instead of assuming the one-time bellicose attitude, he becomes a bit more 
critical, and is wont to judge the yearlings with a deeper insight into their char- 
acter. He soon begins to plan for the Junior Prom, and this affair is the 
climax of social activities of the year. At commencement he indulges in a 
last frolic before the summer. As a permanent memorial to his class he helps 
plant a tree on some part of the campus. 

Long before the summer vacation is over, the Senior looks forward to his last 
year of college, and determines that it shall be the biggest and best, and that 
this year shall make up for all that he has previously missed in college life. Then 
any time from two months to two weeks before the opening of College, he begins 
the raising of that uncertain crop on the upper lip, and when the day for the 
results of his moustache husbandry arrives, he blossoms forth onto the campus 
with an invisible fuzz or a heavy bush, as the case may be, on his upper lip. 
However, whether it be fuzz or bush, he becomes a victim of ridicule by Juniors, 
Sophomores, and even his own classmates. Still, the mere presence of any sem- 
blance of a moustache lends to the Senior his first feeling of dignity, which grows 
more and more upon him as the weeks go by. 

Soon the Freshmen begin to salute him, and this gives him an increased 
feeling of importance, even though many yearlings look at him doubtfully and 
pass without saluting. This custom becomes a bore very soon, however, as 
the Freshmen travel in small armies about the campus; and it is a great relief 
to his right arm, and no great loss to his dignity, when the season of saluting has 

Thus, you see, our Senior is a very dignified fellow. Studies do not worry 
him, as three long years of grinding away at text-books have worn away the 
"bone." Toward the end of the year, the Senior finds himself more and more 
anxious to get out into the world, but in spite of this, time flies fast, and before 
he knows it, he is surrounded by his family and his friends at his Commencement. 
The speeches are soon o'er, the degrees conferred, and our Senior is no longer a 
Senior, but a "College Graduate."

It is a time-honored custom, as a search through volumes of this sort indi- 
cates, to catalogue in this space the campus achievements of the class about to be 
graduated. Suffice it for us to point, with considerable pride at places, to the 
accomplishments of 1922, to be found in this and three preceding "Indices." 
We hope-no, rather we believe-that we have carried on in this manner what old 
Aggie wishes her sons to carry on, leaving the castle of her past unharmed, and 
building, in a humble way, our little gable of loyalty and devotion. 

Four years ago we were wondering which college we should attend. Three 
factors came to bear on most of us; a lack of sufficient funds to endure the finan- 
cial strain imposed by the great universities of the East, a love of the outdoors, 
inborn in the New Englander who has wrested his livelihood from resisting ele- 
ments for many decades, and a desire to be somewhere where democracy, that 
evasive thing which all Americans call their own, was the ruling element. 

So we chose M. A. C. Here the dollar sign was not the seal of the college. 
Here was our "outdoors" at its best, right in the heart of one of the most interest- 
ing valleys of the whole world, enclosed in a frame of mountains whose beauties 
were ever-changing, ever more beautiful. Here, too, was a democracy, the repu- 
tation of which had spread far abroad. 

And after four years, we have every reason to rejoice that we have chosen so 
well. When first we came to "Old South College," and left our names with the 
scowling but kindly Registrar, War still raged across the ocean. We were thrilled 
to hear the tales of Aggie men who were giving their lives to further a more uni- 
versal democracy, whose rudiments they had learned where we were now living. 
Lighted by that bloody glare in the East, we saw for the first time how high must 
be our ambitions if we wished to make ourselves worthy companions to our prede- 

Then War ceased, and Peace came. And we saw the Alumni of Aggie, the 
oldest only fifty years out of college, join hands and together raise a Memorial as 


beautiful as that of any institution, to commemorate a sad, but noble and inspir- 
ing sacrifice. Each and all of us were now imbued with a feeling which had never 
gripped us before, a feeling that we, too, must never stain a 'scutcheon so glorious. 
By now we were no longer glad only to claim Aggie as our own, we were glad that 
Aggie had adopted us as her sons. 

It has been thus in everything. In her athletics, in her non-athletic activi- 
ties, in her scholastic requirements, curriculum and faculty, in all things, we have 
continually seen this small college hold up her head proudly and honorably before 
all men. 

Soon we are going away, away from the little graj' chapel with its books and 
bell, away from Alumni Field and its battles, and away from the "certain valley" 
now so dear to our hearts. 

May we have learned our lesson well! May we remember that we are to be 
part of that foundation on which M. A. C. rests! May we vow that forever, 
"Her loyal sons we'll be!"

ONE, two, three — we cannot say four — but sometimes we wish there were 
more years at Aggie. After two successful years we acquire the title, 
"Stately Juniors," for our activities have not been designed to add to the glory 
of the class alone, but to our Alma Mater. Altho we are the smallest class in 
numbers, being able to muster only one hundred, we do not contribute the fewest 
athletes to varsity sports, nor do we accept a minority membership in the field 
of non-athletics. 

The class made its debut in dramatics with the entirely new original pro- 
duction of the freshman play, "Blood Tells," in which for the first time in late 
years in Aggie history, co-eds appeared on the stage. The Roister Doisters 
took the cue, and the co-eds have added much to the success of every production 
since then. Several men were taken into the Glee Club their fresliman year, 
and the number of songsters has steadily increased until this year fifteen of the 
thirty-six members hail from the Junior class. 

As in non-athletics, even more so in athletics we as freshmen made an early 
start. With the exception of one contest, the yearling football team had a clean slate 
for the season. Basketball and baseball followed closely along the same line. 
It is significant that the class did not lose a single numeral contest to the sopho- 
mores. This in itself did much to weld the class together in a common spirit 
and plant the seeds of a broader college spirit. 

During the sophomore year interest shifted entirely to the varsity activities. 
In all branches of athletics and non-athletics the class held its own. In the 
contests with the freshmen we were not so fortunate as during our own freshman 
year. Such seems to be the fate of all sophomore classes. 


In this our junior year we have not slackened. In the line-up against Tufts 
on the gridiron six of the team were from '23. The hockey and basketball 
squads show a good percentage of ''iS men in their ranks. The number of men 
who have fallen by the wayside because of scholastic standing has been re- 
markably low during our freshman and sophomore years. 

The class believes the old but nevertheless true saying that he gets most 
out of college life who puts most into it, yet it is not an altogether selfish motive 
that has prompted the class of 1923 to take such an active part in college affairs. 
It is the desire to "Boost Old Aggie," and we truly feel that the sky is the limit, 
nothing less. It is the desire to be loyal sons of our beloved Alma Mater whom 
we hold most dear.

Dignified, deliberate, serious, methodical, yet loyal 
and enthusiastic, this tall youth can be depended on 
to impart wisdom or to use muscle, according to the 
occasion. "Abe" is in his element when deliveiing his 
opinion to an attentive audience. He choses his 
words with much care and little haste, and the very 
gods on Olympus cease their armorous quarrels in 
order to hear young Stentor get the argument across. 
"Abe" is a pretty fair student and is not very well ac- 
quainted with the dean's board.

"Alex" is said to have the most perfect form of any 
boy at Aggie. It matters not whether he is partici- 
pating in athletics or shining as a social light, he is 
always conspicuous for his perfect form. Many a fair 
one has been thrilled by watching him on the court, 
pivoted, ready to toss in a basket, or on the diamond 
with his arm drawn back ready to throw a man out at 
second. Be that as it is, Alex is always popular 
wherever he goes on account of his happy ways, his 
syncopated expressions, and his witticisms.

This youth is sure to make a success of life, for he 
possesses that much-coveted faculty of winning his way 
to the heart of the fair one per se. Mase's supreme 
achievement thus far is the successful passing of Fresh- 
man English, even though h-o-r-s-e was never pro- 
nounced "hoss" and never will be. He is a hard worker 
for what he gets, be it in the classroom or in a fray. 
(Ask the five men it took to get him in the banquet 
scrap.) Co-education at Aggie and Mason are supple- 
mentary to each other, for no real party at the Abbey is 
complete without him.

Though slightly under normal stature, this auburn-

one can hear him warbling, "And I take after 'Nap,'

This smiling, yet quiet and demure youth is doing his 
best to uphold the reputation of Marshfield which was 
established by Daniel Webster. It seems as though 
he had inherited a goodly portion of the Webster wis- 
dom, judging by the faculty he has for getting out of 
finals. He comes to us via Dean Academy, a place 
from which everyone normally enters Tufts, but for- 
tunately for us, however, he did not drop his bag at 
Medford, but hiked right on to Amherst. One thing 
we are sure of, wherever Bake goes he will sure have a 
host of friends.

This Mellen's Food baby came from Arlington to add 
to the list of athletes from that town; but as the co-eds 
had no organized games, Batie found no outlet for her 
abilities along this line. However, she has shown other 
abilities which range anywhere from acting to conduct- 
ing the class in "Phyzzie Ed." Batie is always on the 
spot if anything is said about "bumming it" to a game. 
She is planning to hike to Boston some vacation and 
she will certainly get there. Baties future is rather 
doubtful. She may settle down on a farm, but we 
doubt it.

Howard has done little to earn his savage title, for 
he is not at all bloodthirsty, unless it be in a banquet

the ancient history of his home town and of the sur- 
rounding country. If you want to know how Miles

Howard has all the inside "dope" on it, and on any

What's the use of worrying — it never was worth 
while! This might well be the motto of R. B., tor the 
blues are apparently unknown to his young life. He 
does not believe in wasting time, even in the mere 
matter of studying, in which pastime he often indulges 
before final week. Bob has tried various means of 
exercise to reduce weight, always followed by a shortage 
of food at "Ye Famous Hashhouse. " But although 
he believes heartily in the value of his 10 o'clock beauty

Prexy's Hill, Bob is right there, bag and baggage.

Jimmie's quiet but forceful personality was first felt 
when Abington sent its S. A. T. C. quota to Aggie. 
Just glance at our "White Hope," and you will agree 
with Prexy, that the "rural community is surely the 
seed bed of the nation." Being more or less of an in- 
vestigator, he un.successfully attempted to prove spon- 
taneous combustion a fake, and was amply rewarded 
with a collection of scorched sleeping apparel. Jim 
sure likes to swim and "wrastle," but most of his atten- 
tion is devoted to football and basketball. His stern 
eye at a Senate meeting points out the straight and 
narrow path to many an unruly frosh.

Stan started here at Aggie by the S. A. T. C. route, 
but being of a delicate nature didn't get over the re- 
sults of his training for two years when he again felt 
the call to Aggie and struck 1923. As a true "jazz 
hound," this youth is of the advanced school. He is a 
regular second baseman on the Glee Club, where his 
batting average is of the highest. He is noted for mak- 
ing at least one hit after every concert. His winning 
ways and eagerness to be in the thick of things, whether 
it be a banquet scrap or a Soph-Senior Hop, have won 
him a host of friends both on and off the campus.

We would have thought Inza would have been more

However, she is now majoring in Floriculture and seems 
to like it. At times, she wishes she was going back to 
work in the Chem. lab., but the present Chem. building 
has destroyed most of her desires in that direction.

Brewer hails from Upton, and bravely upholds the 
honor of his home town against numerous attacks. 
Although he claims it to be a thriving metropolis, it 
has been insinuated by some that the inhabitants come 
down to civilization in buckboards. Modern slang 
can not be in use there, for Brewer has only one exclama- 
tion, "Great Scott," which serves his every need. In 
Upton he follows farming as an occupation, being 
owner, we are told, of fine Holstein cattle. We expect 
that in the future he will leave Upton for Kansas, and 
become a thriving stockman there.

Science teaches us that the piano is an exaggerated 
form of harp, but we must not conclude from this that 
"Brody " resembles a piano in anything except the 
ability to pro\ide music. The denizens of North Col- 
lege are often kept awake till the wee sma' hours by 
the eerie sounds produced by him and his companion in 
crime — Faneuf. We believe that McCormack heaved 
a sigh of relief when informed that our hero's vocation 
was to be agriculture instead of opera. He expects 
however, to conduct experiments in the effect of music 
upon the milk flow and will install a phonograph in 
each of his henhouses.

His art as a "land-scraper" serves only to impregnate

won him a place on the Hop Committee. After hiber- 
nating in our quiet town for one winter, Buck modestly 
developed managerial aspirations, and now sits on a

His great love for Physics gave him the unique distinc-

Holyoke, "Hamp," and Pelham all number among 
their noted citizens friends of Joe's. Even the children

In spite of his illustrious namesake, this young man

written several poems, but none of his works have

man to whom wine, women, and song do not appeal. 
Youthful frivolities call forth from him cynical com-

distrustful of mankind, but to those who have won his 
confidence, he is a firm and fast friend.

Result: you dont have to see "Sol" to know he's

to store away facts and to keep them fresh, has brought 
him the distinction of being the "Class-Book-of-Sta-

MarshBeld which includes a part of the Daniel Webster

great statesman's gravestone, and it is said that the 
dry Yankee humor, for which the great statesman is 
famous, oozed from his bones and entered our hero. 
"Dinny" is quiet and self-effacing and only those who 
know him intimately have the opportunity of enjoying 
his witty comments. Each summer "Dinny " makes 
practical applications of his lessons in Animal Husban- 
dry on his farm at Marshfield, and, so far, none of the

feel charitably disposed. Let us pass over the harrow-

the boy is now striving nobly to redeem himself in the 
eyes of his fellow students. He has forsaken the women, 
at least temporarily, and given up that agrarian pursuit 
known as "raising cane. " Give him a few more years 
on our inspiring campus and he may come out all right.

In "Phil" we have the only representative in "23

that he upholds all of its traditions even to the famous

his study of entomology will enable him to return to 
the cape and chase the bugs from the bogs. However, 
he does not confine himself to the limits of Amherst 
during all of his spare hours, for he is a favorite at 
Smith and Mount Holyoke, as his election as class

Finding college rather uninteresting, he retired to man-

Music comes as naturally to him as gum to a sten-

early in life he awoke the echoes of the surrounding

blown at the same time. His ambition in life is to own 
a saxophone, altho we understand that his days are 
spent in the pursuit of the elusive atoms that find their 
place away in the dark nooks and crannies of the an-

Leo is one of the most sober and studious members

however, he does not force himself much upon the pub- 
lic, except, perhaps, when he is disturbed while study-

Leo's greatest virtue is his dogged perseverance in 
whatever he undertakes.

We predict a bright future in the business world for 
Skinny. He has shown considerable ability in several 
managerial positions; and the financial success of this 
Index is traceable directly to his managership, which 
he developed by trying to control a flivver. He has 
been known to take recreation at both Smith and Mt. 
Holyoke, and our informal funds have frequently been 
swelled by his support. We are not worrying for his 
safety, however, for he still thinks "girl" in the plural.

Roger was well named, as to the number of his 
friends. He is not always as serious as the accom- 
panying picture might indicate; once you hear that 
contagious chuckle you might as well make up your 
mind to laugh, too. He has a never-failing store of in- 
teresting anecdotes for every occasion, and "Did you 
ever hear this one?" is sure to be followed by a good 
story. We often wonder how such a man could be 
unsusceptible to the fair sex in Amherst and vicinity, 
but now we know that the answer may be found some- 
where back in the old home town.

(1, 2); Soph-Senior Hop Committee (2); Q. T. V. 

Bob selected Aggie for his Alma Mater chiefly be- 
cause he had to pick cranberries by hand back at the 
Woburn homestead. He hopes to cross cranberries 
with sugar beets and harvest the sauce crop with a 
canning machine before many years pass by. However, 
cranberries make a sour subject, so Bob turns to sweet- 
ness for a counteracting influence. Sweet notes from 
both his clarinet and from his "one-and-only" serve to 
enlighten the existence of his comrades and himself. 
On occasion he trips the light fantastic at an informal. 
He has intentions of becoming a florist some day, but 
will have to quit giving away bouquets to make the 
business pay.

"Thank God for teal" 
Holyoke Holyoke High School 

1900; Agricultural Education; Delta Phi Alpha. 

This blithesome youth arrived fresh on our campus 
from that charming village, Holyoke-on-the-Connect- 
icut. Noted for the shyness and gentleness of its in- 
habitants, the one beautiful spot in our valley lives up 
to its reputation in this its latest progeny. It is be- 
yond our imagination to picture "Bennie" in any great- 
er roughneck brawl than "Hide-and-go-seek" or "Who's 
got the button?" He spends many precious hours in 
investigating that phenomenon of nature: — all fish do 
not swim in the water. At times he rhapsodizes on 
"Strange Bits of Fashion I Have Worn," "Owed to the 
Hash-House," etc. Otherwise he is normal.

Peabody, Mass. Peabody High School 

1896; Entomology: Dormant (1, 2, 3); Alpha Gamma 

This worthy son of old Peabody wandered here direct 
from Uncle Sam, and for want of something better to 
do, started studying. He has been studying ever since, 
more or less. Bert has never been quite the same since 
he passed Billy's Physics — the surprise was too great! 
If you try to get the better of him in wit and humor, 
look out! As a dispenser of the blues he can't be beat. 
Bert modestly admits that wine, women, and song 
aren't conducive to a successful career, but his only kick 
about the Soph-Senior Hop is that it is not a monthly

After a year of becoming acclimated here, Mary 
bought a farm in Belchertown on which she might 
practice some of the theories which are given us. 
Farming is a great life, if you just want to exist, but 
Mary is more ambitious. She is trying to decide which 
will pay best on her land — poultry, pom., or general ag. 
Mary may go back to Porto Rico and manage her farm 
there and teach agriculture at the same time. She is 
very serious about her studies but she has been known 
to be in some of the wild times at the "Abbie. "

Between frequent visits to New .lersey, Clifton may 
be seen waiting for "Creeper. " As a result of his 
courses in Pomology, he is a good judge of "peaches, " 
which accounts for his three letters a day and a special 
delivery on Sunday, with an occasional package thrown 
in for good measure. In direct contrast to his tender 
tendencies. Cliff plays a mean position at half-back on 
the eleven, especially after the receipt of the much- 
looked-for epistle. Clifton is a retiring soul and craves

Phil's first choice was Harvard. Believing that only 
fools never change their minds, he bumped over a hun- 
dred miles of B. & M. roadbed to reach M. A. C, and 
enrolled in 1923. He keeps fairly quiet on our campus, 
whether from desire to shield an unsavory past or 
merely because it is natural, we do not know. He is 
going to grow apples, — and he swears there'll be no 
serpents in the orchard to tempt anybody to steal em.

A living example of the fact that fame does not al- 
ways introduce itself with a blare of trumpets. This 
scion of the apple orchards of Ipswich was as quiet a Frosh 
as ever attached himself to old Aggie, but when Hockey 
and Baseball seasons came, it quickly became evident 
that Doc had something to show the campus besides a 
friendly smile. Brought up in the town where most 
of our insect pests were introduced, and in an at- 
mosphere replete with drumlins and other strange 
geological formations. Doc had quite an environmental 
education in his youth, and bids fair to win high scho- 
lastic honors at Aggie.

After two years at Dennison University, Ohio, 
George ran away to New York to see the tall buildings. 
Fascinated by a Broadway chorus girl, he decided to 
stay. With his "Pepsodent " smile as capital, he secur- 
ed work from a landscape gardener and became an in- 
stant success. From behind his tortoise shell glasses, 
George could assure timorous maiden ladies or hard- 
headed business magnates that the evergreens (White 
pines from Norway, Maine, 25c each) which he planted 
on their estates were rare specimens of Pinus strobus 
imported from Scandinavia, bargains at $98. each. 
His fortune made, "Gravey " came to M. A. C. to learn 
new tricks from Prof. Waugh and give an agricultural 
polish to his Dennison education.

As far as we know, the only famous thing in Milford

a steady back stop on the diamond. Dame is apparently 
equally clever with the ladies. As a "heavy" in the

"Johnnie" hails from a little uncharted community in 
Connecticut called Glastonbury, which boasts of shaving 
soap and Hale peaches. We have a faint suspicion that 
the fact of the close proximity of Smith and Mt. Hol- 
yoke was the bait that landed "Johnnie" at Aggie. 
Whatever the inducement, we are glad that he is here. 
He has made a name for himself as a basketball artist, 
winning his letter as a sophomore. "Johnnie" has 
transferred some of his affections from Mt. Holyoke to 
the"Abbie ' lately, and says that the co-eds have one ad- 
vantage; the distance one has to travel to visit them.

considerable notoriety, it being darkly hinted that he 
has occasionally "flunked " a man in drill. His good

When the mayor of Littleton saw "Sherm" walk down 
the main thorofare he ordered the sidewalks widened 
another foot. "Sherm" swings those shoulders like a 
"jazz queen" with a strangle hold on the neck of a 
cadaverous individual while the orchestra rocks 'em 
to sleep down in Kentucky. Maybe he acquired the 
habit under similar conditions. "Sherm" is generally 
fairly quiet and meets all adversity with a cheerful 
and disarming grin. For recreation he chases the pig- 
skin and puck.

differently. When he is known to be in Holyoke, the

Allan is noted as an incorrigible student, and as a 
man who takes great pride in his native city. Begin- 
ning away back in the early freshman days, he went 
lifter the books with a grim determination common 
only to men of great erudition. Although compelled 
to lose considerable time in his freshman year because 
of sickness, his chances for Phi Kappa Phi are still 
excellent. Ordinarily a man of peaceful disposition, 
there are certain respects in which he can not be trifled 
with. This fact has been proved several times by cer- 
tain unfortunate gentlemen who made derogatory re- 
marks about the bustling city of Newfane, Vt., and 
lived to regret it.

This versatile classmate has played a fast game at

The preponderating propensities of this peculiar 
personality are providentially prudence, and persistency, 
which promote a particularly promising prospective 
future. That is, "Hods'" will probably provide a pass- 
ingly fair income for himself and family it he sticks to it. 
The fact that he is well liked by our demure and shy 
coeds may prove disastrous to his future, for men have 
misgivings about those whom ladies adore. Why the 
adoration.' We know not. His looks wouldn"t get 
him beyond the gate at a stevedores" picnic. However, 
let bygones be bygones and give the boy a chance, he 
may come out all right in spite of his college training, 
and he is developing as a "shin-buster"" on the ice.

cused from the R. O. T. C. because, even though placed 
in the rear rank, the officers kept falling over his feet.

Not so. "Mac" sticks to his native Scotch pessimism, 
and just to run true to form, he remains perverse and 
obstinate to the last ditch. A friend of his owed "Mac" 
ten dollars, and meeting him one day held out a bill 
marked X with the words "Take this." "Mac" is so 
dawg-gone used to refusing to do things that he told 
his friend to go chase himself. By the time the other 
side of "Mac's " Scotch nature had asserted itself, 
friend and cash were gone. AVe would do our friend an 
injustice if we did not mention his running ability. 
Naturally inclined to fall over himself while walking,

speed, and has run many good races for M. A. C.

as her time is about evenly divided between the Chem.

little, we will always find in Edna a sturdy supporter

Far-off India must have decided that she ought to be 
represented in the class of '23, for in September, 1921, 
we find this worthy son of hers leaving Harvard, into 
which he had at first strayed, and "bumping " his way 
to old "Aggie. " "Mo" proceeded at once to put the 
Indian sign on a staggering array of studies. His 
books know him better than most of his classmates. 
He has found time, however, to make a number of 
steadfast friends, to whom he has endeared himself by his 
sterling character, his never-failing optimism, and his 
cheering wit.

down the gridiron on the tip of his nose, but woe be to 
the opponent who attempts to hinder him in his little 
pastime. Husky holds medals for bumming. He has 
merely to step out into the road to be invited for a ride,

hard-earned cash on the railroads while freight cars 
are in existence.

Nursing pet stock in floricultural lines and sore mus-

advent on the campus. He was once a good boy, but 
since leaving home how he has changed! Some de- 
signing female hypnotized him with her eloquent eyes 
one day when en route from home. Dick hit the to- 
boggan and has been rapidly sliding ever since. He 
cheerfully informs us he is taking in all the sights on 
the way down, so why stop? We hate to dwell so 
much on the eternal feminine in these pages, but the 
eternal one cuts some figure in the life and sight of 
"Poor Richard."

Harry is not what you would call unduly loquacious, 
but while he lacks in chin music, he sure can talk it up 
on the violin. Probably not many damsels have wig- 
gled thru the latest steps in Bashful Harry's arms, but 
many a fair maid in someone else's arms, has laid her- 
self open to criticism, trying to follow the sweet strains 
of Harry's fiddle. But don't think, dear reader, that 
our hero spends all his time emulating the Pied Piper, 
and endeavoring to lead our Collegiate youth, with his 
ecstatic music, to the depths of Hades via the dance 
hall floor. He is sure death to Aggie Ec, and also 
swings a mean pen in all the various types of quizzes 
that the diabolical ingenuity of our profs can invent.

brought up in the slums of Worcester, who will extricate 
his feet from the dirt and degradation of that mighty

Notwithstanding his many faults, Clyde has a gentle

Charles rolled into town with his well-known nautical 
swagger, and after a cursory examination of the place, 
decided to drop his dunnage sack and "lay to" for a 
while. "Charlie's" mind is far above the petty cares 
of ordinary mortals, and his brow is as yet unwrinkled. 
When driven to desperation by impending finals he 
has been known to study far into the night, and up to 
date has had admirable success in avoiding the Dean's 
Board. It must not be supposed, however, that study- 
ing is his only dissipation, for he may often be seen of a 
Friday evening with all sails set for "Hamp," where it 
is rumored that he is the idol of the season's debutantes.

Two weeks after college opened in the fall of '19, our 
class was honored by the appearance of "William Jen- 
nings" Putman. As his name implies, he proved him- 
self somewhat of an orator. The members of "24 shud- 
der, even now, when reminded of the speech given them 
by "Put" before the nightshirt parade. In spite of his 
physical disabilities he has done his share for the college 
by bossing the freshmen around the hocke,y rink. 
"Put " believes in "business before pleasure. " There- 
fore his stamp business must come before his studies. 
Even so he can make the "profs " think he is overloaded 
with information. "Put" is a man of strong character. 
He is an orator, and a gentleman, but we hesitate to 
call him a scholar.

Sandy gets really loquacious only when something

a row. When it comes to written English, we doff our

was unable to establish a new home-run record. He is 
a typical minister's son, and from habitual practice 
pumping the organ back at Buxton, he has developed a 
keen ear for music, and incidentally a position behind a 
French Horn in the Aggie Band. Huck has entered the

awaits the zero hour.

Believe us, life is a serious proposition. One should 
not deviate from the path for the sake of what is simply 
trivial, frivolous, or whimsical. If you don't believe us, 
ask Fred. This calloused individual is susceptible to 
neither vamps nor moonlight. His emotional center is a 
violin, and it is a pretty safe bet that nothing else ever 
tickled his chin. We might continue more along the

bit of absolute delight known as "my girl," this stuff 
would give "Freddie" too good a reputation.

accounts for Jeff's position as "high-muck-a-muck" of 
that gang famous throughout North College in Fresh-

position the modern Wop which he has picked up in his 
ditch-digging experience ser\ed him in good stead. 
Jeff still maintains his influential sway over North 
College, for besides being able to hand out free informa- 
tion on any subject whatever, he has acted as banker 
and pawnbroker to many a busted comrade. However, 
he is, after all, but a common ordinary mortal — a good

Taking the good advice of his father to "Go East, 
Young Man," Connie started from far-off Minneapolis 
and now actually sees before him the dim outline of a 
college diploma. He early showed possibilities as a 
military rival of Colonel Walker, but "still yet," foot- 
ball and Freshman English are a little more along his 
line. When it comes to pep, just look for Connie. 
There is one thing he can do, and that is cheer; there is 
one thing he cannot do, and that is sing. Besides 
dashing out on the basketball floor now and then Con- 
nie dashes into high society at stated inter\als, and 
makes out well, so he says.

We thought Woodys middle initial stood for speed 
until \vc looked up the matter. If you want to see some 
real Hglitinfj' lilood in action, watch Woody come down 
ovei the hurdles when the competition is keen. More 
than one hurdler has seen himself beaten in the last 
ten yards of the race. Woody is the most dependable 
man on the track squad and can be relied on in almost 
any event. However, his good work is not confined 
to athletics, for Phi Kappa Phi seems within his grasp. 
Rumor has it that he aspires to a happy family. Woody 
usually gets what he is after.

"Goldie" and "incorrigible optimist" have become 
synonymous terms in South College. This optimism 
is endowed with a wide range — it has a sweep from 
quiet serenity and cheerfulness at one extreme to bois- 
terous joviality at the other. Perhaps we can explain 
this phenomenon by saying that Goldie's optimism 
varies with the varying moods of his pipe, which has 
become almost a necessary part of his facial makeup. 
Aggie Ec. 78 has taken a strong hold on our optimistic 
youth, for he will not consider, countenance, or embrace 
any new proposition unless he is duly presented with 
"the facts and figures," and "logic is logic." His 
hair, by the way, is not the source of his nickname.

Jack has the old comeback spirit and though original- 
ly of the class of '18 decided to return and cast his lot 
with '23. While a mustache is a privilege of a married 
man, yet one must obey senior customs, and with pre- 
vious experience. Jack knows already how to train it for 
next year. They say old timers are never the same, but 
to see him on the basketball floor playing on the class 
team, would dispel all such fallacies. Jack plans to 
announce his candidacy for the shot-put this spring 
because of the wicked muscle developed in pushing 
about his wicker perambulator. More power to you

Now that youve turned the pages o'er, 

Read of the class of '24. 

And thus far in play and work 

Our illustrious class has failed to shirk. 

We were christened with a muddy bath, 

Then wearing off our rising wrath, 

In the Six-man Rope-pull, trimmed the Sophs. 

To them we gave the football score. 

But took it back on the B. B. floor. 

In the Freshman-Sophomore hockey game, 

"24 lived up to her glorious name. 

In our victorious Banquet Scrap 

The co-eds put themselves on the map, 

Our Banquet feast was the best one yet. 

And 'tis not one we'll soon forget. 

This ,vear we learned Sophomores 

Returned to Aggie's open doors. 

Beneath our rule the Freshmen quake; 

Them — 'tis our lot to educate. 

We paddled them and paraded them. 

Stole their night-shirts and imprisoned them. 

Of swimming are the green ones fond. 

And so we pulled them through the pond. 

The football boys, with might and main. 

Played and won the football game. 

The Six-man Rope-pull men once more 

Brought victory home to '24. 

And now, dear friends, just a parting word. 

The worthwhile things are always heard. 

So listen thou, as times pass o'er. 

To the fame of the class of '24.

SEPTEMBER twenty-eighth, in the year of our Lord one thousand nine hun- 
dred and twenty-one, the hitherto unknown class of nineteen twenty-five 
sprang into existence one hundred and sixty strong. Soon after this appearance 
heralded by splendid weather, hostilities arose between the unappreciative class 
of twenty-four and the class of twenty-five. Of these hostilities, in the first, the 
poster scrap, the freshmen (such a misplaced name, for never did a more docile 
set of students ever enter college) were victorious, since the sophomores lost all 
their posters. In individual work the younger class showed a marked superiority, 
winning the boxing and wrestling matches. Then, after the "Sophs" had weak- 
ened the forces of the "Freshies" by paddling, the nightshirt parade took place. 
After the difficulties the Freshmen had been through it was to be expected that 
the self-appointed lords and masters of the class of nineteen twenty-five suc- 
ceeded in securing sixty per cent of the nightshirts. Hardly had the freshmen 
recovered from this when they were challenged by the sophomores to a sixty- 
man rope-pull. This challenge was immediately accepted by the dauntless 
class of nineteen twenty-five. In spite of the frantic entreaties and gestures 
of their loyal friends the Juniors, the sixty freshmen were dragged through the 
invigorating water of the pond. In the Freshman-Sophomore football game, 
the freshmen were unfortunate. They lost two of their best men, enabling 
the sophomore team to come out ahead, although not by a very big score. Then, 
to make the despair of the freshman class complete, they lost the six-man rope- 
pull, but not without good hard pulling on the part of the sturdj' team. Though 
the sophomores boast their laurels at present, other contests are yet to come.

STUDENT relations at M. A. C. have for many years been regulated, for the 
most part, by the students themselves. Student government is very largely 
in the hands of four organizations, the Senate, the Women's Student Council, the 
Honor Council, and Adelphia. The Senate is the executive body for all four 
year students, the Women's Student Council makes special regulations for the 
women students, Adelphia is the Senior Honorary Society, and the Honor 
Council has charge of all matters pertaining to the Honor System of Examina- 

The SENATE is composed of eleven members, seven of these being Seniors, 
and four. Juniors. These are elected by the Student body from lists of nominees 
made by their respective classes. Upon the Senate rests the responsibility for 
the upholding of college traditions and customs. It is the Senate which lays 
down the rules for the especial guidance of "the wayward frosh," it is before this 
august and supreme body that the misguided culprit is brought for trial and is 
awarded a fitting punishment. In addition, members of the Senate act as 
referees in all Sophomore-Freshman contests. 

The origin of the Senate is lost in the dim and shadowy past. No record of 
its organization has been found. Apparently it passed thru no bottle-fed in- 
fancy nor timorous childhood; it was born a man-sized institution. Shortly 
after the dawn of recorded history, in 1899 to be precise, there appeared the 
first record of the Senate in a Student publication. In Aggie Life, for Oct. 4, 
1899, in a column conducted by the "Idlers," we find this terse statement regard- 
ing the Senate and its esteem: 

"this institution, will continue to be the ruling power, more to be feared 

than the secret Senate of Venice, more to be respected than the venerable 

Senate of the Roman people. The Idler extends caution to those who 

would tamper with the chained dog." 

The first mention of the Senate in an Index is in that of the class of 190'2. 
The Senate then consisted of eight members, the President being C. E. Gordon 
'01, none other than the present head of the Department of Geology and Zoology. 


During the twenty or more years of its existence, the Senate has gained in 
prestige and power. It has maintained college ideals and customs and it has 
acted conservatively and wisely in student relations so that faculty action in 
such affairs is now a rare occurrence. Membership in the Senate is considered 
the highest honor that a student can attain at college. 

The WOMEN'S STUDENT COUNCIL was estabhshed in 1919. Its pur- 
pose is "to control all appropriate matters pertaining to the conduct of women 
students." It is composed of seven members, three seniors, three juniors, 
and one sophomore elected by all women students. The council has instituted 
rites and customs to be observed by the co-ed freshmen, it has made regulations 
for the conduct of all women students, and, most of all, it has served to bring 
the co-ed more into college life and activities. 

The HONOR COUNCIL. 'Tf I lose mine honor, I lose myself." With 
this as its watchword, the Honor System was introduced at M. A. C. by the 
class of 1921 in its freshman year. The Honor System remained a class institu- 
tion for two years, after which it was adopted by all the four-year classes. 

The Honor Council consists of seven members, three seniors, two juniors, 
one sophomore, and one freshman, elected by their classmates. Their duties 
are to have general charge of all matters pertaining to the Honor System, to 
interpret the Constitution and to try, and convict or acquit, any case of alleged 
dishonor that may come to its attention. The preamble of the Constitution 
of the Honor System reads: 

"We, the students of Massachusetts Agricultural College, believe that 

the goal of education is character. The man of character deals fairly 

with himself and with others, and would rather suffer failure than stoop 

to fraud. The Honor System stands for this attitude in all relations of 

the students with the faculty." 

Membership on the Honor Council is a certificate of character. 

ADELPHIA. There is a skeleton in the family closet and in the case 
of Adelphia, that skeleton is — horror of horrors! — 9NE! Theta Nu Epsilon, 
the arch enemy of justice and destroyer of character! An organization of fiends 
with no respect for student rules and less for those of the faculty! An organiza- 
tion outlawed, hunted and disgraced! Adelphia is a direct descendant of 9N E, 
a grandchild, in fact, and here is the story: 

For years, in the younger days of the college, there existed a subrosa chapter 
of the great 9NE, a national fraternity of doubtful character. The local or- 
ganization flourished, it initiated faculty members, and grew bolder until at 
length it threw off its cloak of secrecy, and its members admitted openly that 
they were members of the Eta Eta Chapter of Theta Nu Epsilon. 

To do justice to the departed, Theta Nu Epsilon at M. A. C. never exhibited 
any of the disagreeable characteristics which brought it into disfavor at other 


institutions. The members of GNE were unquestionably the most popular 
men on the campus and the leaders in activities and its faculty members were 
the most respected, among them being Professors Hasbrouck, Sprague, Mac- 
kimmie and Hicks. The workings of the local chapter appeared to be perfectly 
honorable, and its ideal to help the college. Nationally, however, the fraternity 
acquired a far different reputation, and the local chapter could but suffer as a 
result. Faculty opposition, coupled with the refusal of other fraternities on 
the campus to permit its members to join, eventually forced the local chapter 
to disband. 

In the following year, 1913, two student honorary societies made their 
appearance — Karotid, among whose charter members was "Kid" Gore, and 
Thesides, which absorbed most of the former members of GNE. The existence 
of two honorary societies, each with similar ideals, working in competition with 
each other, led to the fusion of the two societies in the following year into the 
present honorary society, Adelphia. 

The members of Adelphia elect new members from the Junior Class near the 
end of the school year. Members of Adelphia are selected for all-round leader- 
ship and service in college, both in scholarship and activities. Adelphia conducts 
student forums, and seeks to encourage student activities, but has no legislative 
or executive powers. Membership in Adelphia is an honor surpassed only by 
membership in the Senate. 

These four organizations exercise all practical leadership of the student bodJ^ 
Adelphia helps to determine the sentiment of the classes towards college customs 
and to introduce new ideas, and altho it has no authority over the student bod^s 
its influence is nevertheless a powerful one. The Honor Council has proved its 
worth in the few years of its existence. The Honor System is no longer on trial; 
it is a pronounced success and a credit to M. A. C. The increasing number of 
women students is making the Women's Student Council an organization of 
increasing importance. It works in a quiet but capable and effective way. 
The Senate is the leading student organization. Altho it is granted no authority 
by the faculty, the right of the Senate to rule is unquestioned by the students. 
Efficient and capable work for many years has rewarded the Senate with the 
full and unqualified support of every student. Aggie's present and future rests 
secure in the qualities of leadership and character shown in these four organ-

COLLEGE fraternities are too closely related to the institutions with which 
they are associated to be considered without bringing into consideration the 
characteristics of those institutions. They cannot be treated apart from the 
college. In describing the fraternity situation at colleges the only practical 
method is to take the situation at each individual college. So, the conditions 
at M. A. C. do not necessarily apply to all other colleges, nor do the conditions 
at other colleges apply to M. A. C. That fraternities occupy an important place 
in our student life can be seen by the fact that in the 1920-1921 scholastic year 
eighty-six percent of the four-year student body were members of fraternal or- 
ganizations on the campus. Though much may be said about fraternities both 
pro and con, the majority of M. A. C. men are fraternity men. 

The first two fraternities to be formed at M. A. C. were the D. G. K. and the 
Q. T. v., both in 1869. The former became a chapter of Kappa Sigma in 1904. 
In 1873 Phi Sigma Kappa was organized. This is now a national fraternity with 
thirty chapters. In 1879 the College Shakesperian Club was formed as a non- 
secret organization which in 1913 became a chapter of Alpha Sigma Phi. In 
1909 Kappa Gamma Phi was organized, and in the following year Beta Kappa 
Phi came into being, this becoming a chapter of Alpha Gamma Rho in 1917. In 

1911 the Theta Chi fraternity established a chapter on the campus, followed in 

1912 by the Sigma Phi Epsilon and Lambda Chi Alpha fraternities. The Delta 
Phi Alpha fraternity made its appearance in 1916. In 1913 a chapter of the 
Commons Club was organized. The sorority. Delta Phi Gamma, was founded 
on the campus in 1915. This became an honorary sorority February 13, 1922. 
These are the fraternities now existing at the college. In the past others have 
been formed, but their life has been short. 

The first Interfraternity Conference was organized in 1903. Faculty mem- 
bers were at first among the members of the conference, but at present students 
comprise the entire group, although faculty members are admitted to the meet- 
ings. Each chapter has two representatives in the conference, and all chapters 
have equal voting powers. 

The question of the effect of fraternities on the student naturally arises. 
There are at M. A. C. about four hundred and fifty men taking a regular course 
leading to a degree. These men are eligible for fraternity membership. They 
naturally get together in several groups, as any large number of men would do 
under similar circumstances. The fraternity furnishes opportunities for these 
groups to form under the best conditions. The college interests are sponsored 
above all else; college spirit is fostered; congenial companions with diverse in- 
terests are afforded, the athlete becomes acquainted with the so-called grind; 
men are urged to participate in college life and to do their best. It would be 
impossible for four hundred and fifty men to have unity without the several small 


parts of the entire number all striving for that unity. The fraternities have the 
interests of the college at heart, and new members have that interest instilled 
into them. 

A certain pride is taken in the fraternity. The desire on each member's part 
to make good is manifest. It is often asserted that the fraternities are not dem- 
ocratic. Such is not the case. When a fraternity looks up a prospective mem- 
ber, the only things considered are his present personal characteristics. Nothing 
can be more democratic. The fraternities at M. A. C. are a very definite force 
making towards better men and a better college. 

It has been sometimes asserted that the fraternities lower the scholastic 
standing of the college by diverting attention from studies. Such is obviously 
a mistaken idea. No fraternity wishes to damage its reputation by losing men 
because they have failed in their studies. At present there is a scholarship cup 
awarded each year to the fraternity having the highest scholarship average. 
The average last year of all the fraternities was between 76% and 77%, a fairly 
good standing. It has also been asserted that fraternities divide the student 
body into fraternity men on one side and non-fraternity men on the other. The 
only answer is that nearly all the men, 86%, are fraternity men. A perhaps 
just criticism is made that the men who need the fraternity most are most likely 
to be rejected by the fraternities. In the instinctive realization that only the 
fittest survive, the least fit are sometimes left in the lurch, and the best men, 
theoretically at least, are picked. However, the tendency is more and more 
towards taking in such men as are most benefitted by the fraternity, and if a 
man is judged solely by his character, this ideal is realized. Moreover, there 
are always men who have no desire to join a fraternity, and there will ever be 
such men. 

The relations between fraternities at M. A. C. are of the best. The Inter- 
fraternity Conference adjusts all interfraternity matters. Scholarship and 
baseball cups and a relay plaque are awarded in interfraternity contests. Rush- 
ing rules, which are adhered to with the best of spirit, are made by the conference. 

Many bitter arguments are held as to the good and bad points of fraternities. 
Most of the evils thought to be connected with fraternal life are pure imagination 
and are due to the fact that every time a fraternity man cuts a caper, the act 
receives wide publicity. As a force making for the best in college life the frater- 
nities hold a significant place.

A COLLEGE education is deplorably small if it does not include the teaching 
of the heart along with the teaching of the mind. 

With this view of a real college education in mind, the importance of Aggie's 
religious institutions cannot be overestimated. They are powerful agents in 
our scheme of education. They broaden a man's vision; they provide opportuni- 
ties for self -development and a share in the development of others; they open 
up the treasures of serious friendship and world fellowship. The type of men 
graduated from Aggie bears testimony to the mighty work carried on by these 

The chapel services conducted in Bowker Auditorium play a big part in the 
religious development of the students. The speakers at these services are leaders 
in thought and service — men with important messages. 

The largest and most inclusive organization engaged in this vital religious 
work is the M. A. C. Christian Association. This body invites into its ranks 
all those who are in sympathy with its work. 

The annual program of the Association has on its list a large and widely 
diversified number of activities and offers splendid opportunities for valuable 
work. The activities are carried out both on and off the campus. Mission study 
classes, Bible study classes, and the general weekly meetings occupy the interest 
of the men on the campus. A series of "World Fellowship" classes, held weekly, 
aims to permeate the men with the spirit of world citizenship, and to acquaint 
them with the needs of other countries as well as with those of our own. The 
Association is ready to be of help to all students in countless ways, and is es- 
pecially anxious to aid Freshmen with their difficulties. 

The Y. W. C. A. binds the women of M. A. C. in closer fellowship and fills 
their religious needs. 

The Student Volunteer Band is composed of those students who have 
definitely decided to become foreign missionaries and are therefore desirovis 
of gaining a thorough preparation for their calling. M. A. C. is renowned in the 
Far East for the number and the quality of her men who have entered the mission 

The M. A. C. Catholic Club was founded in 1912. It has for its object the 
advancement of religion among the Catholic students. The principal feature 
of its meetings is an address by some prominent person of the Catholic faith. 
The Catholic Club does good work in caring for the religious needs of the Catholic 

In 191.5, a group of Jewish men established a Menorah Society at M. A. C. 
The object of this organization is to promote the study and advancement of 
Jewish culture and ideals. The Society provides lectures, discussions, and 
study circles on subjects of Jewish interest. Membership is open to men and 
women of all creeds and religions. The Menorah Society is doing remarkable 
work, especially for the Jewish students. 

The College authorities are in strong sympathy with all these activities and 
bend their efforts towards their success. They realize the value — yes, the 
necessity, of religion in a well-rounded education. 


i^joK {.m 

PROFESSIONAL Clubs at M. A. C. are referred to as major clubs. These 
clubs are composed, for the most part, of students majoring in a certain 
branch of agriculture but interested underclassmen and short course students 
are generally admitted. Some of the leading major clubs are the Agricultural 
Economics Club, the Animal Husbandry Club, Florists and Gardeners Club, 
Pomology Club. Landscape Gardeners Club and Poultry Club. 

The Agricultural Economics Club is the largest organization. It holds bi- 
weekly meetings, the program generally consisting of an address by a successful 
business man, followed by a forum and social hour. The Animal Husbandry 
Club holds bi-weekly meetings in the form of a series of lectures by the leading 
practical breeders, veterinarians, and dairymen. The Florists and Gardeners 
Club gives one or more annual Flower Shows each year, and in addition to its 
regular meetings, it frequently holds joint meetings with the Florists and Garden- 
ers Clubs of Holyoke, Northampton, Hadley and vicinity. The Pomology Club 
gives several fruit exhibits each year and its members have achieved remarkable 
success for several years in their judging contests with other colleges. The 
smokers of the Landscape Gardeners Club are justly famous, and while this 
organization does not devote such a large part of its time to the study of the 
Landscape Art, as some of the other major clubs spend upon their hobbies, it is 
decidedly a live and useful organization where there is work to be done for the 
college. The Poultry Show in November, which was in charge of the Poultry 
Club, excited the most favorable comment and placed the Poultry Club on the 
list of clubs which are a decided asset to the institution. 

All of these clubs are of very ancient and honorable origin. Eve is said to 
be the charter member of the Pomology Club and Adam was the first initiate. 
Statistics taken by the Agricultural Economics Club tend to prove that all of the 
subsequent ills of mankind are the result, either directly or indirectly, of member- 
ship in the Pomological fraternity. Rivalry between the Florists and Gardeners 
Club and the Animal Husbandry Club has been intense since the beginning of 
history when Cain, first president of the Gardeners Club bounced a rock from 
the cranium of his brother Abel, at that time presiding officer of the Animal 
Husbandry organization. Justice to the Landscape Gardeners Club makes it 
necessary to state that its members did not design the Chemistry building, nor 
should the Poultry Club be confused with the Women's Student Council.

^tWetics; at Jl, ^, C. 

The career of athletics at M. A. C. was born as soon as the College began to receive its first 
students in 1869. Rowing and shell racing were immediately introduced and received with en- 
thusiasm; and soon a crew was formed which could vie with the best in the country. Amherst 
College was the first victim to fall before the crew's prowess, in a race on the Connecticut River at 
Hatfield. It was on July 21, 1871, however, at Ingleside, that the Aggie crew covered itself with 
glory and left an achievement for future Aggie generations to remember and admire. In a three- 
cornered race, with Harvard, Brown, and Aggie as the participants, the M. A. C. crew showed its 
superiority by a decisive triumph, winning over Harvard by the tremendous margin of fourteen 
boatlengths, and leaving the dejected Brown Bear trailing far behind. 

From rowing the first classes turned their attention to baseball. The sport at that time was 
in its infancy and did not arouse much interest. With its gradual development, however, and its 
rise to the title of "the great national sport," came similar progress at M. A. C. It was not long 
before a sound baseball organization was established and games arranged with many colleges. 
Nor was Aggie backward in adopting football, which, as time went on, became more fascinating 
and full of excitement, till it earned the title of "the king of college sports." As the game took on 
more of a scientific aspect, and competition became keener, M. A. C. followed the example of other 
colleges and perfected a coaching system. 

Hockey was first played at Aggie in 1909. It met with instantaneous popularity and success, 
and now ranks high as a varsity sport. 

Basketball was made a part of Aggie athletics in 1902. Every year it has gained in popularity 
until its success as a varsity sport is assured. 

In 1887, a Lawn Tennis Association was formed. The sport enjoyed varsity rating and more 
than mediocre success till 1913, when the falling off of material due to the transfer of interest to 
more thrilling sports caused tennis to be dropped from varsity rank. 

Track has always claimed much interest, and draws a host of ambitious men each year. The 
team competes annually in the Eastern Intercollegiate and New England Intercollegiate meets as 
well as in dual meets with other colleges. 

When the colleges of the country began to realize more clearly the value of athletics, Aggie de- 
cided to embark upon an intensive program, and invited Professor Hicks to be the guiding helms- 
man in its new adventure. Results show that Professor Hicks piloted a wonderful course. He 
reshaped the Physical Education Department and put it on a sound, active basis. Physical train- 
ing was made compulsory for the members of the Freshman and Sophomore classes, credits being 
awarded in the courses towards the degree. The coaching system was reorganized on a faculty 
basis in 1918 and in Harold M. ("Kid") Gore was vested control over varsity football, basketball, 
and baseball. Student interest and enthusiasm in athletics was brought to such a high pitch that 
the splendid new Alumni field was constructed solely by the students under the supervision of the 
director of athletics. The present Aggie athletic system is a busy, hardworking force, which merits 
one hundred per cent support. 

It may be pertinent now to bring to light some of the characteristics which have marked 
Aggie athletics from the very beginning: Aggie Athletics are clean. The motto has always been 
"Play the game and play it right." The reputation of Aggie in this respect has travelled far. 

Aggie athletics are honest. The college has not deviated one whit from the strict enforcement 
of eligibility rules and intercollegiate regulations. 

Aggie athletics are of the never-say-die spirit. The teams have signally demonstrated time and 
again that no matter how utterly overwhelmed they may be, they can work themselves up to a 
fighting spirit that takes their opponents completely by surprise. This trait has become a by-word 
for Aggie teams. 

Aggie athletics are popular. Three hundred and forty-seven men out of a total enrollment of 
less than seven hundred engaged in voluntary athletics in the spring of 1920 — a remarkable achieve- 
ment and a record of which to be proud. 

Aggie athletics enlist the loyalty and the whole-hearted support of the entire ■•itiident body. The 
numbers that follow the teams by hook-or-crook methods to the most distant games are ample 
testimony to the spirit of the student body. Aggie backs its teams as well through an unsuccessful 
season as through a jubilantly victorious .season. 
' The greatest tribute to Aggie athletics lies in the fact that they leave with the students not 

the remembrance of a jumble of victories and defeats, but the sacred realization of the things for 
which they stand and the spirit with which they are imbued.

^easion of 1921 

Thirteen victories in seventeen games played is the record made by the 1921 
baseball team, in Aggie's most successful baseball season up-to-date. An en- 
viable record for any team! A further glimpse at the score card shows that this 
team scored 114 runs as against the 55 of its opponents. Some of the strongest 
nines of the East were on this schedule, games which showed Aggie to be well 
worthy of the position she has now taken in intercollegiate athletics. 

Of the four defeats, two were shutouts from the crack Harvard and Tufts 
nines. One of the games went to Brown, by the score of 4-3, in a sensational 14- 
inning tilt. The other defeat was to Amherst, in another thrilling game, when the 
winning tally came across in the 13th, due to an unfortunate error in judgment. 

The many large scores run up by the team show what hard hitters made up 
that 1921 aggregation, while several of the games went to the ninth inning before 
Aggie could come across with the winning count with well-bunched hits. Two 
of the most notable victories were over our old rivals, Springfield and Amherst. 
On Memorial Day the team enjoyed a 9- run batfest at the expense of three 
Springfield pitchers, while Brighani was in true form. 

The Commencement game with Amherst on Alumni Field, 4-2, was a suc- 
cessful climax for the season. The team got to Zink, Amherst star pitcher, and 
aided by several errors put across 4 runs, a lead which could not be overcome. 
Collins, pitching for Aggie, had almost perfect support and kept the visitors well 
in hand. The team got nearly everything that looked safe, and in the ninth with 
the bases full and one Amherst man scored, the last two men went down in style. 

Good teamwork as well as individual playing stood out in the team's success. 
The pitching staff was upheld mainly by Brigham, Kroeck, and Collins, all of 
whom featured in big games and split even on the honors. Captain Newell 
played a steady game behind the bat the whole season, handling his job in an 
experienced manner. The veteran infield, consisting of Davis, Lent, Mosely, 
and Kroeck, could not be beaten, and in their true form were an air-tight com- 
bination. The outfield was always sure of itself, and Ball, Collins, and Gordon 
made many sensational catches, robbing their opponents of almost sure hits. 
Gordon, replacing Sargent who was injured early in the season, proved himself to 
be one of the surest hitters in the line-up. Others who could be depended on to 
hit safely were Kroeck, Ball, and Moseley.

On account of the early spring, the in'-21 track season began unusually early. 
Among the large number of candidates who came out to work under Coach Law- 
rence Dickinson '10 were many of the old men, as well as a large number of new 
men, especially from the under classes. Altho many of these new men gave 
promise of good work in the future, the old men remained the mainstay of the 
team. One of the greatest misfortunes of the year was the losing of Sullivan '22, 
dash man, who pulled a tendon just before the first meet. Without him we were 
lacking in experienced short distance men. 

The first meet of the season was with Amherst at Pratt Field on April 30. 
The lack of good material coupled with the loss of Sullivan greatly handicapped 
us. The final score was 93-15 in the favor of Amherst. Capt. Slate ran well in this 
meet, winning the mile and coming in second in the half mile. 

The next week. May 7, we journeyed to Rhode Island and were again defeat- 
ed this time the score being 63-53. MacCready was injured in this meet and was 
unable to run during the rest of the season. Capt. Slate ran in his usual form, 
winning the half-mile, mile, and the two-mile. 

The Eastern Intercollegiate meet came May 14. It rained most of the day 
and made the track too wet for any fast times. The team made eight points in 
this meet, which is more than any team from Aggie ever made before in any inter- 
collegiate meet. Capt. Slate, as expected, placed in the mile, getting second, be- 
ing beaten out by Doherty of Tufts on the home stretch. West obtained a fourth 
in the two-mile. Acheson came in fourth in the quarter mile in a close finish, the 
first four men being bunched. The surprise of the day was a second place by 
Woodworth in the low hurdles. 

The New England Intercollegiate meet came May 20 and 21. Slate, West, 
and Acheson went to this meet but were unable to score any points. 

The triangular meet, held at home, was the last and best meet of the season. 
New Hampshire won, scoring heavily in the field events. Several of the college 
records were broken in this meet. Capt. Slate broke the record for the two mile 
run, doing it in 10 mins. 14 1-5 sees. Woodworth broke the record for the low 
hurdles, being timed at 27 sees. The relay team established a new college record

This fall regular track work was installed instead of cross country. Many 
men showed up for practice, for there were many different events in which they 
could compete. Two interclass meets were held during the season. On Oct. 15th 
a novice meet was held for all men who had not won any points in intercollegiate 
competition. The class of 1923 won this meet, mainly because of the good show- 
ing of Kelly, who won three first places. On Nov. 5th a handicap meet was held, 
and again the class of IQ^S won. The showing the men made in these two meets 
has proved that fall track is of assistance in lining up the material for the spring

1921 team 



No better evidence of real college spirit could be shown than was evidenced 
last fall, when in spite of four straight losses, the student body backed the 1921 
football team every minute of the time and were well repaid by a victory over 
Tufts in the last contest of the season. 

There was an important change in this year's schedule, for a game with 
Amherst, on Pratt Field, was substituted for the annual contest which has been 
held for so many years with Springfield. 

Over forty players returned to college in the fall, ten days early, to start 
training for the football season, and the opening of college found our elevens 
working out on Alumni Field. A somewhat new idea was inaugurated by the 
establishment of a second team composed of seniors who had no chance of making 
the varsity, but who came out simply to help out the first team, and also of under- 
graduates who were climbing the ladder. The graduating seniors, who had been 
out for the varsity for three years, and played on the second team, were awarded 
in accordance with a new ruling by the Athletic committee, the aMa and sweaters, 
as a reward for their faithful service. 

The Pond Memorial medal, the greatest football honor which Aggie can be- 
stow upon a player was awarded to John N. Lewandowski, of Easthampton, full- 
back of the 1921 team and one of the greatest football men Aggie ever developed. 

The first game of the season found a light eleven lined up on Alumni Field 
against the much heavier Connecticut Aggie team. A touchdown and two field 
goals resulted in a 13-0 victory for the Maroon and White. 

The following week the team journeyed to Lewiston, Maine, and battled 
Bates to a scoreless tie. A rainy day and a high wind made good playing im- 
possible, with both teams waiting for the break that never came. 

The third game of the season resulted in a rather easy win over AVorcester 
Tech. Aggie scored but one touchdown in the first half, but came back strong 
in the third period, scoring four more touchdowns before the end of the game. 

The next week saw the M. A. C. eleven on Pratt field for the first football 
game with Amherst in fourteen years. About 5,000 people saw the game, the 
cleanest and one of the most bitterly contested contests ever played between 
the two institutions. Aggie was forced to return with a 13-0 defeat, but the score 
is little evidence of the comparative strength of the teams and of the way Captain

Cotton's eleven fought to stave off defeat. Two goals from placement in the 
second quarter and an intercepted forward in the final period accounted for 
the Amherst scores. Captain Cotton and Lewandowski played a wonderful 
game, the latter's abilty standing second to none other on the entire field. This 
was the last game for "Hub" Collins, captain-elect of hockey and baseball, for 
he was forced to give up football because of appendicitis. 

The breaks the following week again went to our opponents and the team 
was defeated 14-7 on Alumni Field by Vermont. Though defeated, everyone 
realized that Aggie had a powerful team which outplayed their opponents almost 
every minute of the game, and were barely beaten by a very much heavier eleven. 

A costly fumble by Aggie which was snatched up for a 95 yard run again 
spelled defeat when Rhode Island in the next game beat their Bay State rivals 
7-2. The offensive work of Grayson and Lewandowski shone above all else, but 
to no avail. 

Things seemed to go from bad to worse, for the varsity received their fourth 
defeat of the season when they lost to New Hampshire State 56-7, at Durham. 
The Granite Staters were by far the stronger team, heavy and fast, and tearing 
almost at will up the soaked and slippery field. More than one hundred loyal 
supporters who had "bummed" their way to the game stood in a cold steady 
drizzle and cheered for the Aggie eleven which was running up against the best 
football team they had met all season. 

In the final game of the season the team came into its own and wound up 
the season by beating Tufts, Aggie's big rival by a 14-0 score. The victory 
brought a rosy tinge to a rather blue season, for the team had "come back" and 
redeemed itself in the last opportunity of the year. Every football team at 
Aggie receives at one time or another in the course of the season, a nickname, and 
the night before the Tufts game, Captain Cotton's eleven was christened the 
"White Rats," a name which they well lived up to by defeating the Tufts Jumbo, 
the following day. John Lewandowski, winner of the Pond Memorial Medal, 
ended his football career in a blaze of triumph by making one touchdown, punting 
wonderfully and carrying the ball for a gain on every attempt. 

The largest football banquet ever held, terminated the season and the follow- 
ing men were awarded their letters: 1922 — Captain Cotton, Lewandowski, 
Freeman, Acheson, Clark, Field, Packer, Collins, Leland, Bent, and Manager 
Peck; 1923 — Captain-elect Grayson, Sargent, Beal, Marshman, Mohor, Alger, 
Mudgett, Tumey; 1924— Salmon. 

The 1922 team will be led by Captain Raymond Grayson of Milford, and 
has the opportunity of playing the best and most comprehensive schedule ever 
arranged for an Aggie eleven. The team will play the first intersectional football 
game in Aggie history when it engages Michigan Agricultural College at East 
Lansing, Michigan on November 25. The only other change on the schedule is 
to be the game with Stevens which is to be played in Hoboken, N. J., on Nov. 11.

Beginning the season with only two veterans from last year's fast team and 
with the hardest schedule ever arranged for an Aggie team before it, Aggie turned 
out what might be considered the best team that it has ever had. In all, eleven 
games were played, six of which were won and five were lost. 

The first game of the season resulted in a defeat by Dartmouth in a close and 
exciting game on our home rink. Then the team went on their first trip of the 
season in which they broke even, defeating Yale but losing to M. I. T. the follow- 
ing night, the team weakening in the last period, tired out after the hard game with 
Yale. After the game with Yale, one New Haven paper said, "Yale was out- 
skated and no Eli player approached the individual game put up by Collins and 
Lyons." Next, Amherst and Bates were defeated on the home rink, and then 
the team journeyed to New York where it was defeated by Cornell and Hamilton. 
It was after this trip that Captain Collins relieved Coach Mansell as coach of the 
hockey team, and it was here that the real success and prowess of the team began 
to show itself. The team now made another trip to New York, in which they 
gave West Point their first defeat of the season. Then about one week later the 
team journeyed to Philadelphia where they took on the fast St. Nicholas and 
Quaker City Hockey Club teams, two of the best in the east. It was in these 
two games that the teams surprised the Philadelphians, for they could not imagine 
an Agricultural College turning out such a team as they saw defeat the St. Nicks 
3-2, and then one night later hold the Quaker City team to an even score until 
within five minutes of the end of the game, when, tired out by the hard game of 
the night before, they could not make their skates respond to their will, and they 
lost 5-1. A few quotations taken from Philadelphia papers are as follows: — 
"Six young Massachusetts farmers defeated the St. Nicholas hockey team from 
New York City last night at the local Ice Palace, 3 goals to 2. It was a splendid 
team of players, this Massachusetts Agricultural College bunch. They played 
just about the best game seen here by any college this season." "Incidentally, 
Kroeck, the Aggie's goalkeeper, displayed some stickwork, the like of which is 
seldom seen at the local Ice Palace, and it was the general opinion that he rates 
as a wonderful goalkeeper." Also, "Their Captain, Collins, is one of the best 
defence players on the ice today." 

The season was successfully closed when Amherst was defeated for the second 
time in a close and exciting game by a 1-0 score. 

From the standpoint of games won and lost it might appear that the team did 
not have a very successful season, but when it is considered that every one of the

teams played ranked with the best in the east and that three of the five losses 
came in the final minutes of play when the team was tired out as the result of 
previous hard games the night before, one eannot help but realize that the Aggie 
hockey team of 1922 was one of the best ever. 

Throughout the season Captain ColHns was the star of every game which the 
team played. In all the games he was ably assisted by Lyons and Gordon, for- 
wards, and Haskins, center. Lyons was, next to Captain Collins, the high scorer 
of the team. On the defence, Collins was assisted by Hodsdon at right defence 
and Kroeck at goal. Kroeck came out for the team for the first time this year 
and developed into one of the best goaltenders in the east.

Coach Gore's "All Valley Quintet" was a basketball team that hung up one 
of the most enviable records that has been made on the basketball court in Aggie's 
History. When the season closed with a 31-22 victory over Bates, the team had 
won eleven out of fifteen games, while every team on the schedule with the ex- 
ception of Harvard, with whom there was no return game, fell before the Maroon 
and White. 

The season opened with an exceptionally strong squad reporting for practice. 
Captain Gowdy, Smith, Roser, Thompson, Marshman and Hale were all letter 
men, while Tumey, Beal, Grayson, Bike, Barrows, and Kane completed a very 
strong nucleus. The team that started the season by winning the first game 
against the strong M. I. T. team — 22 to 9 — was Smith, left forward, Tumey 
right forward, Marshman center, Capt. Gowdy left guard and Bike right guard. 
These five regulars all hail from the Connecticut Valley within 20 miles of the 
Drill Hall and were known as the All Valley Five. 

The next game was played with Trinity and the team gained a decisive vic- 
tory of 28-18. The next four games were away from home and each one resulted 
in a defeat. Connecticut Aggie, Tufts, Harvard and M. I. T. all managing to 
gain the large end of the score. The M. I. T. game, however, was the team's 
last defeat and it was won in the last few seconds of play by a basket from mid- 
court which gave Tech the game by two points. Nine victories followed: — 
Boston University, Middlebury, Tufts, Connecticut Aggie, Wesleyan, Williams, 
Clark and Bates all going down to defeat. Every game was fast, clean and 
hard-fought and the M. A. C. team was known everywhere as having wonderful 
pass work, a strong offence and an almost impenetrable defence. 

iVlthough we are losing by graduation Captain Gowdy and Smith, two almost 
invaluable men, besides Thompson and Roser, the two first string subs who got 
into almost every game, the prospects look good for next year. There will be 
three of the original this year's team to start with next year as a nucleus. The 
Freshman team also had a good record winning 8 out of their 10 games, and there 
should be some good material available from the class of 1925 next year.

FRESHMAN athletics at M. A. C. form a large part of the athletic curriculum 
of the college, for through these Freshman teams the coaches and student 
body are able to select, at least in their mind's eye, the men who will make the 
Varsity the following years. The fact that the Athletic Management is careful 
to arrange a schedule, and hire a coach for the Freshmen, is proof enough that 
such teams are an advantage. 

The Freshman rule, as at work in the majority of the large Eastern colleges, 
is a great thing in the development of the undergraduate. In the first place the 
Freshman has a chance to get settled in college life, as class athletics do not take 
as much time as Varsity. In the second place class teams form a foundation 
which can be built upon, the Freshman is given a chance to compete with men 
of his own rating, not with those of many more years experience. Again, the 
men coming from different schools have been trained by different methods; the 
Freshman team enables them to be drilled according to the Aggie system. Final- 
ly, it promotes class spirit, "pep," and the essentials of a good college spirit. 

Freshmen teams, at least in the major sports, have a great advertising value. 
By going to near-by high schools, or by having the high school teams come to 
the college for games, the college is advertised. A team coming to a college, 
meeting a good, clean playing team, being well entertained, will go away with a 
favorable impression, and it will have a great influence upon the selection of an 
Alma Mater. Taking everything into consideration, a one-year rule would be 
a good thing in every college. 

Freshmen teams at Aggie with outside schedules comprise baseball, football, 
and basketball. 

19'24's baseball team of the spring of 1921, coached by John J. Maginnis, 
captained by "Art" Nicoll, and managed by "Vic" Cahalane, was a credit to 
the class and college. Playing a hard schedule of games the team came through 
with victory in more than their share of the contests. In spite of the fact that 
the Varsity used numerous men off and on, the team was a success. In the 
Sophomore game at Commencement, however, superior pitching was too much 
for them, and they lost the game 4-2. 

The football team of 1925 started out this fall with a fine looking eleven. 
With a vast amount of material and coached by "Sonny" Mansell, ex-Aggie 
end, the team has been a credit to all concerned. Ending the schedule with the 
defeat of our old rival Williston Academy, the team entered the Sophomore con- 
test confident of a win. Poor defense, coupled with injuries to one of their 
best men, enabled the Sophomores to win 20-14. 

1925's basketball team started with such a vast quantity of good material 
that Coach Gore promised a banquet if the season was gone through without a 
defeat. In spite of losing several good men through ineligibility, the team bids 
fair to complete its contract. With high scorers in Sullivan and Samuels, the 
team is beating the best preparatory schools in the valley.

"An you musnt sioear and curse, or you II only calch it worse, 
An we'll make you soldiers yetV 

Private Smith of the — th Infantry was one day patrolling his post, musing 
on the hardships of army life, the lack of gray matter in the heads of certain 
officers, the ways and means of improving the service in general, etc., etc. Gen- 
eral X — rode up to the guard and waited an instant for some sign of recognition 
on the part of Pvt. Smith. Smith ruminated his chewin' calmly. 

General: "Well.''" 

Smith: "Howdy." 

General: "Don't you salute officers?" 

Smith, mistaking the general's gold hat cord for cavalry yellow: "See here. 
Buddy, I may be a recruit, but I don't salute no damn cavalryman!" 

We have the above mentioned cavalrymen minus the epithet. If you see a 
youth equipped with boots and spurs, remember that the spurs are not for the 
purpose of keeping his feet from sliding off the desk. Seriously, we believe in 
cavalry drill at M. A. C, and after going through the grind of infantry training, 
cavalry arouses enthusiasm. Military training started at M. A. C. with the 
founding of the college in 1867. Professor Goodell, later president of the college, 
was the first instructor. He taught cavalry tactics and drill. In 1870 the federal 
government detailed Capt. H. E. Alvord, U. S. A., to the position of "Professor 
of Military Science and Tactics" at the college. An artillery unit was maintain- 
ed, the equipment being two brass field pieces besides small arms, etc. At times 
the cannon would be used to fire salutes on the town common. Other command- 
ants came to the college, and the drill was changed to infantry. Among the men 
who have been in charge was Lieut. W. M. Wright, Snd U. S. Infantry. He was 
at the college from 1896 to 1898 and during the recent war was made a major 

During the World War an S. A. T. C. unit was maintained at the college. 
This was reorganized in January of 1919 when Col. Walker established a cavalry 
unit. Cavalry proved immediately popular, and several juniors and seniors elected 


drill. The unit is now in charge of Major F. E. Shnyder, 13th Cavalry, with 
Major Herman Kobbe, 13th Cavalry, in charge of equitation. Capt. V. V. Shu- 
feld, 13th Cavalry, assists Maj. Kobbe. Dismounted ecjuitation is in charge of 
Capt. Thomas Brady, Jr., 10th cavalry. The enlisted personnel consists of 
twenty-one men. A large stable has been built to house the sixty horses, the 
maximum now allowed the college. 

Aside from the routine drill, several other attractive features are connected 
with the military. In the spring of 19'21 the center of the High School Day pro- 
gram was the mounted demonstration. A polo team has been organized, the 
first one in the history of the college. This sport requires excellent horsemanship, 
coolness, good judgment, a keen eye, and skill with the mallet. Another feature, 
the pistol team, attracts considerable attention. During the last season the team 
out-shot the Harvard and Norwich marksmen, altho this was the first year of 
pistol shooting at the college. 

Military training develops men physically, morally, and mentally. It gives 
poise and self-control. Without question the cavalry drill is popular with the 
men. The beat of horses' hoofs on the road, the clink of sabers, the dull creak of 
leather, the feel of the horse underneath, — all stir the blood and quicken the 
spirit as does nothing else. M. A. C. is fortunate in having a mounted organiza- 
tion such as is now on the campus.

NON-ATHLETICS at this college now include six principal activities, namely- 
The Musical Organizations, consisting of Glee Club and Orchestra, the Roister 
Doisters, the college dramatic society; the Collegian, published weekly; the 
Squib, the college humorist, appearing six times a year; the Index, the year- 
book, published each year by the Junior class; and the Debating Society, re- 
cently revived since the war. There is no limit as to the number of activities 
in which a man may take part; however the tendency is to encourage more to 
try out for one or two things than for a few to be engaged in many. The stu- 
dent body is well represented this year, as shown by the total number engaged 
in the activities — 109, out of a total of 136 positions. 

These organizations, though managed separately, are all supported by a 
student tax, paid at time of registration. They. are under the control of a central 
non-athletics board, whose supervision, however, is mostly of a financial nature. 
This board is composed of the President of the College, member ex-ofEcio, two 
members of the faculty, Profs. Machraer and Gould, two representatives from 
the Associate Alumni — Worthley '18, and Mellen '21, a general manager ap- 
pointed by the President — Prof. F. P. Rand, and one representative of each of 
the activities represented, usually the manager. 

The organization of this committee took place in 1915, bringing, so to speak, 
order out of chaos. Harold C. Robbins, until recently professor of physics at 
the college and always interested in non-athletics here, was instrumental in bring- 
ing this about. Up to 1919 he served as faculty manager, while Prof. Machmer 
has served as chairman of the board since the beginning. Much credit is also 
due Prof. Lockwood and Prof. Gould, '13 and Lawrence Dickinson '10, for the 
way in which they have always encouraged non-athletics at the college. 

Recently a credit system was instituted here, by which gold and silver medals 
are awarded annually to the leaders in non-athletic activities. These medals, 
in the form of a very neat watch charm, correspond in a way to our athletic M's. 
The custom was started in order that the men might receive some recognition 
for faithful service, a need which the non-athletic board felt was quite urgent. 
At the same time they wished the men not to lose sight of the fact that the real 
benefit from any activity comes from taking part in it, not from the recompense 
which one receives afterwards. 

Non-athletics is a broad subject and has been touched upon but very lightly 
here. These activities have a distinct place in college life, for they furnish the 
avocational training necessary to a liberal education. It is to be hoped that they 
will be supported in the future by workers as interested and as faithful as those 
men who have brought them into high repute in the past.

AGGIE Musical Clubs have a reputation to uphold, built up by fifty years of 
creditable singing and loyalty to the college. Their work, although at 
first of a simple nature, has from the start been of the highest calibre. The suc- 
cess of the clubs has not always been what it might have been, however, due to 
several handicaps. Until recent years they have lacked a good experienced 
coach, and naturally enthusiasm was lacking, both in the clubs and in the whole 
student body. Then there has been the all-important financial question, which 
for a long time limited college activities along this, as along other, lines. 

The history of the musical clubs actually begins with the first class in college, 
that of 1871, and they have indeed passed through many interesting stages since 
then. Until recent years the College Choir, composed of from 6 to 12 men, was 
a regular college institution, for no matter what other singing the men did, the 
college fathers determined that they should not neglect Sunday Chapel. 

Another organization which has seemingly passed out of existence was that 
group of men known as the Clark Cadet Band. As early as 1890 this band 
made itself known, and from 25 to 35 was not an uncommon membership. Such 
was its reputation, in fact, that it was in demand not only for college functions, 
but also for many affairs in neighboring towns and cities. 

In 1906 comes the first semblance of any organization of the college music, 
when the M. A. C. Musical Association made its first appearance. Before this 
enthusiasm had been very lax, but with the production of the '06 minstrel show, 
the college was ready and eager for more musical activities. 


The class of '13 was gifted with more than the average musical talent, and 
for four years in succession, under the leadership of Fred D. Griggs, they cap- 
tured first place in the interclass sing. To Griggs we also owe some of our better 
known college songs, as "Aggie Men Are Gathered," and "Dear Old Massa- 
chusetts." Through his influence musical activity took a new lease of life; and 
in the next year, 1913-14, it received another boom when Geo. Zabriskii 2nd '13, 
and some of the undergraduates, took it upon themselves to secure the services 
of Mr. John Bland, a New York choirmaster, who came from New York weekly 
to coach the clubs. 

The spring vacation of 1914 saw 24 men journeying to New York and New 
Jersey for their annual spring trip. Concerts were given at Rutherford and 
Suffern, N. J., three times in New York City, and twice in other places nearby. 
The clubs were royally received wherever they went, and the success which they 
achieved was due in large measure to the untiring efforts of Mr. Bland, in working 
with the clubs and giving them publicity. 

It was in the Christmas vacation of 1914 that the annual Christmas trip 
to Boston and vicinity was instituted. Again Mr. Bland turned out an A-1 
club, which was received by large audiences at Waltham and Hingham, as well 
as at three performances at the Somerville Theater. "Ed" Towne '15, was 
leader of the clubs this year, and Frank Anderson, '16, the manager. The 
latter was the author and composer of two songs which were the hits of the trip, 
while Worthley, '18, then a Freshman, proved to be a valuable soloist. 


The next incursion into the regions of New York and New Jersey took place 
in the spring of '15, and included concerts at such places as Rutherford and 
Paterson, N. J., Huntington, L. I., and New York City. The trip was pronounced 
"A Great Social Success," but due to adverse weather conditions and counter- 
attractions by Billy Sunday, it left the clubs financially embarassed; in fact, so 
much so that a New York trip has not been made since then. 

The quartet that year, composed of Swan, Towne, Worthley, and Hildreth, 
proved to be one of the best which the college has produced. Besides adding 
much to the Glee Club program, these men gave a number of concerts during 
the year in this part of the country, and with their large variety of songs were 
prepared to meet any occasion. 

Mention should be made here of "Pluto's Daughter," that first and famous 
Musical Comedy of Aggie's, which put the 1915 Commencement Show in a class 
by itself. This production, in the Academy of Music, Northampton, was most 
enthusiastically received, from the scenes in the under world to the very latest 
styles in ladies' gowns. The play and lyrics were due to the clever pen of Sydney 
Masse, '15, while Hyde Smith, '15, and Anderson, '16, wrote some very catchy 
song hits. 

With Jimmie T. Nicholson, '16, and Kenneth B. Laird, '16, leaders of the 
Glee Club and Orchestra respectively, the clubs kept up their good work in the 
year 1915-16. The regular Boston trip was made, including six concerts in five 
days; and on this trip the first Boston Alumni concert was held at the Copley- 
Plaza Hotel. Frank Anderson was again manager of the Clubs this year, and, 
assisted by "Dave" Lipshires, '18, did much to give them the publicity which 
they attained. 

The following year Frank Edwards, '17, was elected leader of the Glee Club, 
but owing to injuries received in football was unable to fill the position, and 
Worthley was chosen to take his place. The Boston trip was even more than 
usually successful this year, as eight performances were given, and the clubs 
branched off to Falmouth and Providence, R. I. before returning home. Several 
other good trips had to be cancelled later in the season due to extreme war con- 

"Kid" Goff, '19, and "Eddie" Landis, '21, took charge of the Clubs very 
successfully last year. This season it was thought advisable to develop an or- 
chestra, without a mandolin club, and "Freddie" Waugh, '22, was elected to head 
this. "Freddie" and "Ray" Vinten, '22, Glee Club leader, have both taken an 
active interest in musical affairs while at the college, and have each written 
catchy songs which have been the hits of the trips so far this year. 

One of the most popular concerts with the men last year was the joint per- 
formance of the clubs with the Mt. Holyoke Clubs at South Hadley, at which 
each club sang the other's college song. Another good trip was the one to Hard- 
wick, Mass., last May. Although a small village, the men were entertained 
there with the best the people afforded. This has proven to be the case in- 
variably in the trips to the smaller towns throughout the state, where hospitality 
is the by-word. 

M. A. C. has been fortunate during the last ten years in having so many men 
who were musically talented, and who were willing to work to put Aggie on the 
map. They had the pep. They showed what Aggie musical clubs can do. The 
undergraduates shoidd be ready to keep up this reputation which they have 
made and to add to it.

THE history of the Roister Doisters is essentially the history of its productions 
and its members. The first dramatic organization at Aggie came into being 
in the spring of 1910 under the name of "The Massachusetts Agricultural College 
Dramatic Society," and the following season a farcical comedy, The Private 
Secretary, was presented in Amherst, Montague and Ware. 

In 1912 the name of the society was changed to "The Roister Doisters,'' 
after one of the first English comedies, Ralph Roister Doister. Under the leader- 
ship of George Zabriskie, 2nd, '13, the club presented in this season What Happen- 
ed to Jones, giving eight performances and taking it on tour in New York and 
New Jersey. The following season The New Boy, a farce, was given. 

In 1913-14, the custom of giving two plays a season was inaugurated, the 
plays being Mr. Kelly from Kalamazoo and Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors. 
The greatest activity before the war was reached in 1914-15. It was this season 
that Pluto's Daughter, a musical comedy written largely by Frank Anderson '16 
and S. M. Massie and Hyde Smith '15, and managed by Nicholson '16, was suc- 
cessfully presented in Northampton. Her Husband's Wife was also given this 

The following season two good plays. Under Cover and A Full House, were 
presented. At this time the club came under the supervision of the newly 
created Non-Athletic Activities Board. In 1916-17, soon after The Arrival of 
Kitty, WILT was declared. The club was re-established in 1919 and presented 
Officer 666 and Are You A Mason? 

In 1920, under the leadership of Charles Boardman '20, and Jonathan 
Smith '21, the club presented Nothing But the Truth, at Prom time. At com- 
mencement, Augustus Thomas' well known play. The Witching Hour, was given. 
It was in this play that girls first appeared in the cast, the new step greatly in- 
creasing the possibilities of the organization. 

Last season was a very successful one from every standpoint, with Carl 
Bogholt, Don Davidson and manager George Edman, all of '21, leading the way. 
Sheridan's classical play. The School for Scandal, was presented at Junior Prom, 
and was commented on very favorably by discriminating critics. During the 
Semi-Centennial celebration at commencement John Epps, a historical play of 
early days at M. A. C, written by Frank Prentice Rand of the English depart- 
ment of the college, was presented. This play met with immediate success, and 
was repeated a few nights after the first performance. Much of the credit for 
this most successful season is due Professor Rand, who acted as adviser, coach, 
and playwright. 

The history of the Roister Doisters is one of steady progress. Each year 
plays of higher rating and greater difficulty than those of the preceding year have 
been presented, until at the present time the club advocates absolutely the best 
in drama, and measures its success by the nearness of its approach to the achieve- 
ment of that ideal. To sum up, the Roister Doisters is a popular activity with 
the students, is self-supporting, advertises the college, and, most important of 
all, is doing an invaluable cultural work for M. A. C.

PRIZE Speaking Contests at M. A. C are an old tradition. In the program 
of that memorable first commencement of 1871, mention is made of a 
declamation contest in which the members of the three lower classes took part. 
In 1873 the Farnsworth declamation contest was established. This was con- 
tinued for several years when it was replaced by the Burnham Declamation con- 
test, which was made possible through the generosity of Mr. T. O. H. P. Burn- 
ham of Boston, and has continued till the present time. 

The Flint Oratorical contest was established in 1881 by a gift of the late 
Charles S. Flint, a former trustee of the college. After his death the prizes were 
continued by a college appropriation for the purpose, and the contest has formed 
a part of the spring term activities since. 

During the spring of 1917, when the college, together with the nation, was 
mobilized, both the contests were discontinued. In 1918, the Burnham and 
Flint contests returned to a normal basis and the interest in them, which the 
war interrupted, is slowly returning. 


IN times past Aggie established a high standard of debating, and a place on 
the debating team was by no means easily attained, for large numbers of 
men competed for the position. The students have always recognized the value 
of being able to express their ideas in a convincing manner, regardless of their 
field of endeavor. During the war debating received a setback from which it 
recovered more slowly than most of the other campus activities. The light 
was kept burning during the dark periods by the annual Freshman-Sophomore 
debates. As freshmen the class of 1923 defeated the class of 1921, but the follow- 
ing year the class of 1923 defeated 1922. These two class debates formed the 
nucleus for the further growth of debating. The varsity team returned to the 
stage in 1921 when the M. A. C. team and the Springfield team tied in a dual 
debate on the following question: "Resolved, that the U. S. government should 
own and operate the railroads." 

In 1922 a permanent triangular debating league including M. A. C, R. I. 
State, and Connecticut Agricultural College was organized. 

Debating has returned to M. A. C. and if the present is any guide to the 
future, the college will have some excellent teams. Much of the present success 
of debating is due to the efforts of Prof. Prince who maintains an unflagging in- 
terest in this activity.

i:f)e Collegian 

Two years after the opening of the Massachusetts Agricultural College in 
1867, there appeared the first college student publication, and now, after 
several radical changes and the lapse of over fifty years, we have the Massa- 
chusetts Collegian, a paper issued weekly by the undergraduates of Aggie. Dur- 
ing this period of time there have been six different papers edited, five of which 
were published by the students themselves, and one of these five by the old 
D. G. K. society. 

In 1869 came the first written expression of "Aggie" student wit, under the 
name of "The Grand Menagerie of the Massachusetts Agricultural College," 
but only a single volume ever appeared under this name. This same year THE 
INDEX also made its first appearance. 

THE REGISTER, edited by the college, appeared in 1871, and though not 
a student publication, it served as a calendar for the year, appearing regularly 
in June until 1878. 

The following year saw the publication of "The Cycle." This booklet was 
presented to the public by the D. G. K. society, and though it was a fraternity 
publication, nevertheless it contained, principally, items which were of interest 
to the entire student body, and very little fraternity news was printed. "The 
Cycle" contained about twenty-four pages and was published at Commencement 
time for ten years. 

Finally, on October first, 1890, appeared the first real Aggie newspaper, 
edited by the student body. It was the "Aggie Life," a three-column paper of 
eight pages, published bi-weekly, and about the same width as our present 
"Collegian," but a few inches shorter. The subscription price was one dollar 
a year and the first edition was sent to all friends and alumni of the College as 
a sample. In "Aggie Life" there was a wider discussion of subjects pertaining 
to agriculture, especially in regard to the agricultural demonstrations conducted 
here at the College. Thirty years ago last June was the Commencement number 
which contained Commencement Day poems and addresses. A slight change 
in policy was apparently adopted in 1892, for a two-column, twelve page edition 
was substituted for the size of the previous year. 

For some reason, the term "Aggie" became obnoxious to the ear of the 
M. A. C. undergraduate and also to many of the alumni. Therefore, in 1901, 
the student body voted 11,5-4 to exclude the term "Aggie" from all their publica- 
tions, and on November 6, 1901, the paper was forced to change its name from 
"The Aggie Life" to "The College Signal." The new form contained on the 
average about eighteen pages, with three columns to the page. 

In the first issue of 1909 a great advance came in the life of the paper, for it 
was changed to a weekly, of eight pages with four columns to the page. The 
present size of the COLLEGIAN was then adopted, as was also the general ar- 
rangement of the other material in the paper. 

The Massachusetts Collegian officially came into existence in 1914, and 
that name has probably come to stay through the future years. The policy 
of the paper is to serve both the alumni and the students to the fullest degree 
possible and keep uppermost in the minds of all, that watchword — Altogether 
for M. A. C.

I ^HIS year the Index Board takes pleasure in welcoming the "Aggie Squib" 
-*- to a place among the recognized campus activities. "Squibby" has been 
approved by the student body as the official outlet for the college humor, and 
the publication is proving a distinct asset to the college. 

Several humorous publications have appeared on the campus at various times, 
but the first of any permanence was the predecessor of the "Squib," a four page 
pamphlet called the "Friday War Cry," first published on October 23, 1914. 
The aim of the "War Cry," as its editors announced, briefly but pungently, in 
the first issue, was "to knock everyone in college at some time or other." In 
the third issue appeared this terse statement under the caption 'Superfluous 
Explanation': "The editors admit a lack of literary training." In the first issue 
the editors also ofl'ered a free copy to anyone whose name appeared in any edition. 
This ofl'er was accepted, according to the second edition, by all except George 
Washington and Tabby. The stafl^ of this venture was organized under "Sid" 
Masse, Editor-in-Chief. On May 7, 1915, a new board of editors was announced 
as a result of competition. The commencement number under this board was a 
more elaborate magazine of eighteen pages and, with this number, the "War 
Cry" became a monthly publication. 

With the first number of the following year, 1915-16, the magazine attained 
its present size and form, and the staff was reorganized. This issue was the 
"Name It" number, and the next issue appeared under the name of "The Aggie 
Squib." Under this and the succeeding board of editors, the Squib attained a 
high standard in both its art and literary departments and the publication was 
in every way a credit to the college. The war, however, caused "Squibby" to 
suspend publication, for its editors were among the first to enlist. Only one edi- 
tion appeared in 1917, this by a new board of editors, and then "Squibby" did 
not appear for two years. 

In November, 1919, an entirely new board of editors, headed by "Jack" 
Crawford '20, restored "The Squib" to its place on the campus. Too much credit 
cannot be given this board for their initiative and pluck. The following year the 
board organized with M. F. Webster as Editor-in-Chief, and under his leader- 
ship "Squibby" became more prosperous. C. Raymond Vinten, Managing 
Editor of last year's "Squib" succeeded to the position of Editor-in-Chief for 
the year 1921-22, aided by a staff that is both capable and experienced. 

"Squibby's" humor has always been of the best and the cleanest. The 
personal "razz" of the early numbers of the "War Cry" was very soon abandoned, 
and while "Squibby" is unmistakably an "Aggie" product, the type of humor 
it contains is such that it can be enjoyed as much by the public at large as by 
"Aggie" men and women.

THE college yearbook or Index, as it is called, of which this meagre book is an 
example, has been published every year by the Junior Class since the founding 
of the college. It usually misses the things it should contain, it often contains 
some things it should not; but its perpetrators have always striven to make it 
as representative, as accurate, and as wholesomely interesting for the student 
body and for outsiders in general as was in their power possible. Whether or 
not it is appreciated as it appears year by year, it stands as a permanent record 
of the activities and the personnel of the college from the very beginning. 

Just why the Index is gotten out by the Juniors each year is still a cause for 
speculation. Nevertheless, along towards the end of its second year in college, 
each class finds itself facing the problematical question. Of course, everybody 
else is too busy to bother about preparing a lot of pages to form a book. The 
Freshman is kept busy dodging his Sophomore spies, while the Sophs in turn 
assume an uncalled-for importance in dogging their younger brothers about. 
The Senior spends most of his time in getting engaged or in trying to run college 
affairs, and what is left for the Junior? Not much, except to be a Junior and put 
out the Index. And a perilous undertaking it is sometimes, too. So far not many 
casualties have resulted from its publication, but we make no prophecies for the 

The first class in college, that of '71, brought forth their Index in 1870. An 
insignificant-looking pamphlet of 28 pages, paper-bound, devoid of advertising 
matter, it contains the class histories, lists of the trustees, faculty, and students, 
then 114 in number, the membership of the various activities, and a list of the 
books and papers to be found in the old reading room, then a distinctly important 
feature of the college. The number of siders, moustaches, full beards, burnsides, 
and "dusenberries" also totalled 114, according to a conspicuous list entitled 
"Qui a des Cheveux." 

Down through the ages from that first volume, the Aggie Index has found its 
wandering course. Soon there appeared larger, fancily-decorated booklets, and 
later the real cloth-bound books, as we now know them. There occurred occa- 
sionally in the older books one or two photographs of prominent faculty or stu- 
dents, and from this developed the custom of including individual pictures of the 
Juniors. This custom worked admirably until the book of 1910, when — lo and 
behold — there appeared baby pictures of the men besides the regular rogues'- 
gallery specimens. 

Like all other of the college activities, the publication of the Index has not 
always been a path strewn with roses. Nevertheless its development is interest- 
ing, as one finds by digging into the yellowed pages of old volumes, which are 
full of little items of interest in the college life of yesteryears. Until the writing 
of a much-needed M. A. C. history is undertaken by some ambitious soul, these 
Indexes will be one of the most valuable sources of information of the college 
which we now have.

LEST the reader think that this is a thesis for a Ph.D. from a girls' seminary, 
let it be known that, when the occasion demands, our heroes of gridiron, 
court, rink, track and diamond can lay aside the attire of their more vigorous 
pastimes, clothe themselves in gorgeous raiment, and skillfully pilot soft, clinging, 
palpitating creations across the lubricated floor with that undulating movement 
that shows sangfroid, physique, perfect rhythm, and absolute mastery of the 
situation. Don't think that the athletes are the only ones that can effectually 
decorate the waxed plank. The rest of us are right there when it comes to a tight 

Dances at this institute come under three classifications : 

(1) Informal: — That which costs but a few paltry shekels; occurs during 
the best part of the afternoon and the worst part of the evening; to which one may, 
with perfect propriety and an even chance of a successful outcome, take a girl 
one has never before seen or heard of but whose qualities are vouched for by a 
firm friend (never take a chance on the roommate of your friend's girl, she's the 
plumber of the two). 

(2) Junior Prom: — That which sets one back all one has plus all one can 
borrow, beg, or steal (total expense always exceeds total resources) ; endures 
seventy -two hours, no time out for eating and sleeping; begins with an all night 
dance and ends with a chapel service — which is going in the right direction; to 
which one takes either the girl one intends to tie up to for life or a girl who knows 
for sure that one is never going to seriously consider her; demands the type of 
uniform worn by a ward politician at a fireman's ball. 

(3) Sophomore-Senior Hop: — That which occurs at that season in the life 
of the average Senior when he is wondering whether dad is going to finance a trip 
through the mountains before he settles down to the grind of earning the price 
of a ham sandwich or he (Senior) must go out into the chilly blasts of a Labra- 
dorean world of rocks and icebergs which chills his boyish soul despite the fact 
that the temperature at midnight on Boston Common is permissive of sound 
slumber, when the "cops" are kind; costs a significant sum to the ordinary mortal, 
but let's not think of the base metal when all the world's gay; endures one night 
in fact but years in memory; necessitates that one consider long and thoughtfully 
before asking her to add to the pleasure of the occasion; demands white "pants" 
(in addition to the B. V. D.'s), and don't get "em too thin; if successful, winds 
up the college career in the most satisfactory manner. 

Last but not least a few words should be written regarding the attitude of 
the faculty toward the pastimes of youth, dancing in particular. Doc X is 
quoted from a reliable source as having stated that, physiologically speaking, 
dancing consisted in "wrastlin" 'round with a bunch of sweaty women." On the 
other hand. Doc Y, a "looper" at the art, went all the way from Cairo up to 
Constantinople to see the Whirling Dervishes perform. He says he knows they 
have perfect control physically because he himself saw every muscle in their 
bodies move. We have not been to Constantinople yet to verify this, but Doc is 
a man of unquestionable veracity. Altho these two scientists hold differing 
views, most of the faculty are tolerant if not actually enthusiastic.

ALL that need be said of M. A. C.'s Semi-centennial is that it was as much 
a success as the Amherst Commencement game was, from Aggie's stand- 
point. We do not remember the error in the ninth inning which filled the bases; 
we can see only the players being carried off the field victorious. So neither do 
we keep in mind the fact that it rained on Monday, June 13, or that such and such 
a program was not carried out correctly. We look back on the whole and see 
it only as a glorious and fitting series of events, a veritable gem in Aggie's rich 

Our Semi-centennial was truly an Aggie undertaking, pushed by Aggie spirit 
and backed by Aggie loyalty. It fulfilled all hopes of those to whom it meant 
so much, and it was worthy of the work of the many faculty members, alumni and 
students whose co-operation made it what it was. This event had been looked 
forward to for a long time, and there was great disappointment that, on account 
of war conditions, the fiftieth anniversary of the founding of the college was 
unable to be celebrated in 1917. However, it was resolved at that time to have, 
if possible, an even greater celebration to commemorate the graduation of Aggie's 
first class in 1871, and that resolution was carried out to the full. 

Coming as it did in a period of rebuilding, after the college had made such 
costly sacrifices in the world war, the event had a deep significance for Aggie men. 
With the thought of the great patriotic services which Aggie rendered in the war, 
what could be finer than to look back fifty years and trace its history and the 
steps by which it has developed from smallest beginnings? And then to look 
forward and plan for even finer deeds and higher ambitions.' 

Then, too, there was the new Memorial Building, just completed, the dedica- 
tion of which fitted in so appropriately with the other exercises of the semi- 
centennial. "This sepulchre in our garden," as it was termed by Dean Lewis 
in his dedication speech, stands as a permanent memorial to the fifty-one Aggie 
men who lost their lives in the war, and serves as a half-century milestone for 
the college on her road to successful achievement. It is now seeing good service 
as a center of student life on the campus. 

The building was at once opened to the public upon its completion, and 
pressed into service even before its dedication. It served as the headquarters 
for the alumni, different rooms being assigned to the various classes. The 
students immediately made use of the fine dance floor by holding the Sophomore- 
Senior Hop there on the last night of the celebration. Throughout the five days 
the building was thronged with admirers of its beauty and its serviceability. 

All those who were on the campus at Commencement last June helped in 
the successful carrying out of the Semi-centennial, in that theyadded to it their 
own spirit, a spirit which not one who attended could help but enter into. Esti- 


mates place the total number of visitors at more than one thousand, with about 
forty percent of the total alumni of the college included in this figure. The whole 
affair was in the hands of a committee of some twenty men, faculty, students, 
and alumni, and the highest praise can be given to these for their untiring efforts. 

This was, for many alumni, their first return to the college since their grad- 
uation, and was by far the largest alumni reunion ever held here. Even the old 
campus seemed to catch the spirit and donned its best holiday attire to greet 
its sons, one and all. The spacious fields about the campus pond, the lawns 
and walks about the buildings, all were at their best. The trees seemed to cast 
down a benevolent shade as they smiled down upon their old friends, and with 
the stately Memorial Building in the center of it all, the picture was complete. 

The program of the semi-centennial covered only five days, June 10 to 15 
inclusive, but into these five days was crowded a series of events carefully planned 
out and executed by the committee in charge, so that they took place smoothlj', 
precisely, and without a mistake. Each day had a definite place in the cele- 
bration, and its activities were planned accordingly. 

The first day launched the anniversary program auspiciously. Friday, 
June 10, was observed as Citizen's Day, and exercises were held which were of 
special benefit to outside visitors. Addresses were made by His Excellency the 
Governor Channing H. Cox, Dr. Arthur W. Gilbert, '04, State Commissioner of 
Agriculture, and the Honorable Henry C. Wallace, Federal Secretary of Agri- 
culture. These men spoke about the general field of agriculture, why it should 
be taught and practiced more in New England, and what M. A. C. has done 
for the agriculture of the country. Among the other events of the day was the 
Faculty-Senior baseball game, won by the Faculty 7-6. The Faculty realized 
that this was their last chance to take a whack at the Seniors, and they certainly 
did a good job. The Interclass Sing was won by the Seniors. This sing is held 
annually during Commencement Week on the steps of Stockbridge Hall, and 
this year brought out some good talent and original songs and gave our visitors 
a true display of undergraduate spirit. 

"John Epps," the Commencement play, written by Prof. Frank Prentice 
Rand, and produced twice during the celebration by the Roister Doisters, was 
in complete harmony with the semi-centennial spirit. It depicted college life here 
during the early seventy's with the "Big Four," Profs. Clark, Stockbridge, Goess- 
mann, and Goodell as leaders of the institution. The plot centered about a 
young man, entering the college as a Freshman, and the whole play brought in 
numerous interesting scenes of campus life. The play was well received by its 
audiences, and added much to the success of the semi-centennial. 

By Saturday, the number of alumni back had reached a total of 750. This 
day was primarily for the alumni, and they certainly made their presence known 
all over the campus. After the more practical program of Citizen's Day, and

before the solemn ceremonies of the dedication of the Memorial Building, the 
old Grads donned their colored costumes and frolicked from noon 'till late at 
night. The program was noticeably smooth and complete. The 4-1 baseball 
victory over Amherst in the afternoon filled the cup of joy to overflowing. It 
was a fine game, clean and hard fought, and the victory was well earned. The 
real program of the day concluded with a band concert in front of South College, 
after which the alumni went to their various houses for fraternity reuiiions. 

The Baccalaureate Sermon was delivered to the graduating class on Sunday, 
Dedication Day, and the subject was "Our College and the Common Weal." 
The crowning event of the whole Semi-centennial was the dedication of the Mem- 
orial Building. The dedication address, delivered by Dean Lewis, inspired the 
throngs of people, seated or standing on the big lawn in front of the building. 
Dr. Joel E. Goldthwaite cited some of his experiences in the Great War and 
extolled the courage of the American soldier. Messages were read from General 
W. M. W^right, who was unable to be present, and from Secretary of War John 
W. Weeks. The day ended quietly with class picnics and smokers, and informal 
groups in secluded spots on the campus. 

Anniversary and class day exercises occupied Monday, June 13, and the pro- 
gram was as scheduled, with the omission of cavalry drill. A notable event of 
the commencement was the formation of a Varsity Club by about fifty former 
athletes of the college, to support the athletic council and to hold together the 
athletic leadership that has graduated throughout the college's history. Senior 
Fence and Class Day exercises were held in front of South College, as is the 
regular custom, as was also the Junior Frolic, taking place later in the day. 
One of the most interesting of the meetings, at least for the alumni, was that 
held on Monday afternoon at which five M. A. C. men, three of them alumni, 
reviewed in detail aspects of Aggie college life during its fifty years of existence. 
The speakers were: — Professor F. A. Waugh, N. W. Gillette, '"21, W. A. Munson, 
'05, A. F. MacDougall, "13, and President Butterfield. 

On Tuesday, regular Commencement exercises were held in the big tent, 
with the awarding of prizes and conferring of degrees. An interesting feature of 
the graduation was the presentation of a parchment to each member of the 
class of fifty years ago, these men having seats of honor on the platform. The 
parchments, which contained words of greeting and congratulation, were signed 
by C. A. Gleason, president of the Board of Trustees, and were sealed with the 
college seal. 

The class of '75 was decreed the winner of the '09 reunion cup, with eleven 
of their twelve living members back for the semi-centennial. The 50-year 
class, that of '71, had practically as good a record, with twelve of their thirteen 
living members present. No little interest was centered about this little group 
of old grads, who were honored throughout the celebration. 

This whole Semi-centennial is an event to be looked back on with pride by all 


who had any part in it. It certainly must have a distinct place in the lives 
of all those who were present. Aggie has reached a halfway mark after fifty years 
of upward climbing from the smallest beginnings. But she is not stopping here. 
It is merely an incentive to push on further, to do even greater things, to climb 
ever upwards to develop in realms yet unexplored.

ACCORDING to the Honor Council, "the goal of education is character." 
This maxim being true, behold, on the following pages, some of 1923's 
most educated men! Of course all '23 men have character, but these individuals 
alone have been honored by the distinction of election as "the class characters" 
by their revering (?) classmates. 

The competition was keen. On the night of the election, the first class 
smoker of the year, Adonis combed his hair nine times, our Athlete wore all 
three of his "M" sweaters, the Bolshevik refused to shave for a week, and the 
Business Man came in loaded — with a list of the class debts. The Fusser smiled 
at our Most Popular Coed, giving the Optimist reason to display his widest grin. 
The Grind stopped for a moment with his wheel-barrow loaded full of books 
from the Library, and looked with awe at the Idler who reclined against a post 
listening to a campaign speech by the Politician. The Rustic rolled in, chewing 
a straw and clad in his baggiest trousers and flannel shirt. 

When the Orator started a speech, the Pessimist gnashed his teeth, where- 
upon the Peppiest member leaped from his chair and called for a long yell for the 
Terpsichorean who was exhibiting a few fancy steps to the Unsophisticated. At 
this stage of the meeting, the AVit told a raw one which nearly broke up the 
election. When order had been restored by our loyal classmate Dean Burns, 
everyone voted for the man whom he thought was most unfit for the position, 
and those who had the paper voted twice. Meanwhile the smoke clouds raised 
by the Smoker had become so thick that the votes could not be counted, so cider 
and doughnuts were passed around, everyone filled his pipe, the Parson pro- 
nounced benediction and everyone helped each other home. The next day the 
sweeper found some ballots on the floor, counted them and announced the elec- 
tions. Look them over!

npHE Class of 1923 has fared as well as, if not better than, any present class 
1 in class contests. The football game with 1922 was decisively won by 
Captain Grayson's team, by the score of 13-0. The next year, 1924 was beaten, 
our team winning by one touchdown. In the rope-pull we lost to '24, and won from 
'22. Both contests, however, were full of fireworks and replete with pep. In a 
close contest with the '22 quintet, the basketballers from '23 came out on the 
long end of the score, while the next winter found "24 wresting the numeral game 
from us by a few points. Both contests showed the real spirit of the class, and 
almost the whole class attended the games. In the Freshman-Sophomore Relay 
Race, 1923 was successful both times, while in the Annual Hockey game with 
1924, the latter nosed out our puck chasers by a single tally. In baseball, we 
again were victorious twice, the game with '24 being played during the Semi- 
centennial celebrations, and being witnessed by a great crowd of alumni besides 
members of 1923. Holley had all the 1924 hitters befuddled with his swift balls 
and tantahzing "drops," while good work by Hilyard, Faneuf, and the others on 
the offensive gave our team the bigger score at the end of the ninth inning. In 
the banquet scrap we did not fare very well, as being new to the ways of man- 
euvering in combat on a large scale, the men of '23 were completely outclassed 
by '22, although the latter had to resort to the use of automobiles inside the 
zone and cart off those whom they had captured, so that the Senate forfeited the 
issue to the class of 1923, and we held our sumptuous banquet that evening in 
the Hotel Bridgeway at Springfield, Mass. The next spring, Fortune again 


frowned upon us by causing the night of the banquet scrap to be cloudy, and 
at about three A. M. it was raining "pitchforks," so that all our ingenious and cun- 
ning plans went for naught. We met the Freshmen the next morning in back of 
the Cold Storage plant, and there we made as good a stand against enormous 
odds as did any of the Hellenes who defended the pass of Thermopylae against 
the mighty hordes of Xerxes. Encouraged by the appearance of daylight, and 
by the small numbers of our valiant warriors, the Freshmen, outnumbering us 
about two to one, were easily victorious. 

In the only Freshman-Sophomore Debate participated in by our budding 
orators, 1922 was decisively defeated by Captain Sandow's team. In the other 
non-athletic activities on the Campus 1923 is well represented having some 
twelve men in the musical clubs and several men in the other activities. 

As soon as our men were eligible for Varsity sports, 1923 showed its mettle, 
Hilyard making a berth on the Baseball nine in his Freshman year, and the 
next fall Mohor, Grayson, Sargent, and Latour being awarded their "M"s', for 
being members of the Varsity Eleven. The next term, Marshman played 
Varsity Basketball, and Gordon Varsity Hockey, so that 1923, is very well 
represented in Aggie's athlete list, and has early demonstrated her worth as a 
true representative group at M. A. C.

Use Snyder-Made Specialties 



The flavor is distilled 
into the tender meats. 

This is a digestible, 
healthful dish. 

A loral produet.

est cuts of Pure Pork.

Snyder Cured Hams and Bacon — Smoked with Corn Cobs 

A high-grade New England produet. 

"Snj'der Cure" means mild cure. 

Mildly cured Hams and Bacon require special care 
in preparation, and the manufacturer stands a shrink- 
age loss, but the results are well worth the extra trou- 
ble. It is the only way to preserve the tenderness of the 
meat, avoiding the excessively salt taste. 

If you prefer quality to quantity, try our Snyder 
Cure Hams and Bacon.
